USA: Pompeo, Ukraine FM Klimkin slam Russian 'aggression' in Crimea

United States, Washington DC
November 17, 2018 at 04:40 GMT +00:00 · Published

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the White House will continue to reject 'Russia's attempted annexation of Crimea' as he spoke in Washington DC on Friday, alongside his Ukrainian counterpart Pavlo Klimkin.

Pompeo stated: "We will continue to impose consequences against Russia until Moscow fully implements the Minsk Agreements and returns control of Crimea to Ukraine."

"We do not want our European friends to fall prey to the kind of political and economic manipulation Russia has attempted in Ukraine since it cast off its Soviet shackles," Pompeo added.

Klimkin affirmed Ukraine's unity with the US, noting that conflict between Russia and Ukraine has claimed around 11,000 lives

"We see shelling of our land and lives being lost every day," Klimkin said, adding that the countries will continue to work together to strengthen resilience.
