President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko expressed condolences to the family of Senator John McCain, who died of brain cancer. The head of state wrote on his page in Facebook.
“We will never forget his invaluable contribution to the development of democracy and freedom in Ukraine and support our country.

We will remind, at the age of 81 from brain cancer died an American Republican Senator John McCain.
In July 2017 the Senator was diagnosed with glioblastoma during surgery to remove a hematoma from under the eyes. In the same month, he had surgery on the brain and in late July he returned to work in the U.S. Senate. In September, he told reporters that the doctors estimated his chances of survival in 3-14%.
Therefore, Senator John McCain, who was diagnosed with brain cancer last year, decided to stop treatment.
