USA believe justified the granting Ukraine military aid, as are aimed at ensuring peace in the country. This was stated by U.S. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo during a speech at the körber Foundation in Berlin, which is published on the YouTube channel of the organization.
Pompeo explained that the U.S. is “very committed” to ensure stability in Ukraine, without preconditions. “This project on which we work,” he said.
The Secretary said, a few years ago, many believed providing defensive systems to Ukraine is a bad idea. In particular, were against former us President Barack Obama and Germany.
However, the current us leader Donald trump has provided weapons to the Ukrainian side “twice or thrice” to protect against “Russian aggression”, he said. “We are proud of this, believe that it makes sense for freedom, European, world and sovereignty of Ukraine”, — concluded Pompeo.
In April, the President of the United States Donald trump in a congratulatory letter to Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky on the occasion of his inauguration promised him unconditional support of the United States.
