UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The administration of US President Donald Trump has provided the Ukrainian side with weapons so that it can fight against the Russians.
A statement was made by US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo in an interview with WCSC-TV. A transcript of the conversation is published on the website of the US State Department.
According to Pompeo, the current president Trump wanted to make sure that Vladimir Putin will not be able to cause suffering to the Ukrainian people, because the United States provided Ukraine with defensive weapons systems.
The administration of the previous head of states Barack Obama chose not to do this, and provided only blankets.
According to the Secretary of State, the American side gave Kiev real weapons for those cases when they can fight against the Russians. Pompeo noted that he is proud of what the current administration has done with its policy towards Ukraine.
In addition, the Secretary of State spoke out about the Trump impeachment procedure launched in the House of Representatives in connection with the July telephone conversation between the US President and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky.
According to Pompeo, he was part of America’s policy in Ukraine. According to him, they wanted to make sure that the scale of existing corruption in Kiev was reduced, and Zelensky had the opportunity to do it.
