American Republican senator John McCain died of brain cancer on Saturday, August 25, surrounded by his family. He was 81 years old.
In July 2017, the senator was diagnosed with glioblastoma during an operation to remove the hematoma from under his eye. In the same month, he had a brain surgery and in late July, McCain returned to work in the US Senate. Some time ago Mr. McCain announced his decision to stop the treatment of the cancerous tumour.
McCain was a tough critic of Russia and showed great support for Ukraine.
The leader of the Samopomich Union party, Andriy Sadovyi, expressed his condolences upon the death of Senator McCain.
RIP Sen John McCain. Thank you for your support!
