#Trump reiterates position on #Ukraine. As I said, he’s not pro-Putin. His goal is more local involvement:
Trump makes unexpected statement on Ukraine – reiterates his position. (As I said, his goal is local involvement.)
President-elect Donald Trump expressed sympathy for Ukraine in his interview with The New York Times Dec. 3.
Trump said he has friends in Ukraine. He also noted Russia has become very confrontational.
He said the United States suffered the least from what has happened in Ukraine. However, Ukraine’s closest neighbors are reluctant to speak about Ukraine’s problems and do not take an active part in trying to settle them.
The US president-elect said other countries are just saying ‘we have to stop the Russian aggression’ but haven’t done much to do it.
He said Europe’s feeble stance on Russia is explained by the oil and gas Europe wants to get from Russia.
“We are fighting for Ukraine but no one else, except Ukraine. This is not fair and logical,” Donald Trump said.
