The Pentagon is committed to a strategic partnership with Kiev

27
As the RIA NewsThe head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, announced on August 20 that he intends to indicate Washington's commitment to a strategic partnership with Kiev during his visit to Ukraine.

His visit to this country is expected on August 24.

I have scheduled meetings with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak, and I intend to underline our commitment to strategic partnership and our support for Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity.




In his words, he is also going to emphasize "the US efforts to train, equip and provide advisory support to the Ukrainian Armed Forces."

As he explained, the priority in resolving the Ukrainian issue belongs to diplomatic methods, noting that US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volcker will visit with him.

I support the efforts of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to work there with our NATO allies and Ukraine and to pressure Russia to fulfill its obligations under the Minsk agreements.

- said the US Secretary of Defense.

He believes that this requires "an immediate ceasefire, the withdrawal of heavy weapons and the provision of unhindered access for OSCE monitors."

    I support the efforts of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to cooperate there with our NATO allies and with Ukraine and to put pressure on Russia to fulfill its obligations under the Minsk Agreements.

          This is not the Pentagon committed to something there. This Kiev is committed to sit on American bayonets.

          The experience of the American "partners" in communicating with the Papuans is not small .. Glass beads, old hard drives, fire water. Svidomo Papuans are happy to receive gifts from the American sahib. In exchange for land and raids on the Russian bear.

          The very fact of the arrival of an official of this level suggests the opposite. It seems that the Americans decided to make an additional infusion of funds.

        So Petya himself sits in “his” chair on credit.

    with our NATO allies and with Ukraine and in exerting pressure to Russia so that it fulfills its obligations under the Minsk agreements.

    Well, as usual, this can be set outside the framework of diplomatic relations. If the United States really does not understand that Russia has nothing to do with the civil war in Ukraine, then it is high time for American diplomacy to "drain the water" - the old tedium no longer passes even in Europe. But Russia is annoying.

      So is it all because of the Minsk agreements? belay And I thought that so they want to make friends. And after the war with them, we will generally- "do not spill water"!

      I just wanted to write about the same thing. And fools are happy to tumble to the tune of Amers.
      It’s enough just to stop giving loans to these cannibals and the war will end immediately, you can even continue to broadcast support from the stands.

    A ship under a star-striped flag no longer understands where it is sailing, it has a team with the captain to "understand". How can they "steer"? They will probably start now - some into the forest, some by firewood to command the unfortunate Ukraine. And her plants stop, in general, industry. How can GDP grow if energy consumption drops?

      Duc, started a long time ago. Now they themselves do not quite understand what they have done. Obamchenko left an inheritance - a bunch of stinking. Yes, poking around. And Mattis should take care of the liver, or sew up before a visit to Dill and meetings with Petryga and Poltorashka. Keep away from sin. Yes

    American diplomacy cannot be denied efficiency. ... Found European "Kurds". For the sake of "independent independence", Ukrainians will fight cheaply for the interests of American corporations ... and not necessarily with Russia .... they will send to Raqqa - they will also go to Raqqa.
