Yesterday’s hearing of the assignations committee of the U.S. Senate included speeches of senators, as well as that of Pavlo Klimkin, Foreign Minister of Ukraine. The officials discussed future relations with Russia in the light of the ongoing large-scale aggression.
South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham called the hearing to "broaden the understanding" of Russia's policies and intentions toward the Eastern European countries who participated. Mentioning the long-lasting opposition between Ukraine and Russia, the official assumed that President Donald Trump would be a ‘good ally’ for the U.S. allies in Eastern Europe. ‘Ukraine will be helped more, not less, and we will push back’, he said.
Ukraine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin added that Moscow poses a threat "to the whole Western world, the trans-Atlantic alliance". "The cyberwar is going on every day, all the time, and it's a threat to everyone because it doesn't matter how far you are from the Kremlin, you can be 500 miles or 5,000 miles. Everyone is vulnerable," the Ukrainian official said.
