The Republican candidate fights for presidency, so he won’t be meeting with any foreign officials, - Taras Berezovets, Ukraine’s political scientist

Trump has planned working visits to Pennsylvania and Ohio. These states are famous for their support of Democrats, however, there is a place for surprise there. So today, Trump fights for the votes of those who still haven’t made up their mind.  

Of course, he won’t be spending any time for meetings with anyone, including the Ukrainian president. Clinton, on the other hand, pays more attention to the international vector; she planned to visit the UN General Assembly in New York, so she used the opportunity to meet with Poroshenko.

Votes of the Ukrainian diaspora mean much to her – that’s actually more than a million of U.S. voters who traditionally support Republicans. However, in the light of Trump’s controversial statements they might as well support Clinton now.

Besides, Trump’s campaign headquarters haven’t been really professional when it comes to working with correspondence. The problem with Ukraine emerged only because Trump’s campaign HQ failed to answer the invitation of Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry. But that’s not about ignoring it, it’s about the lack of professionalism. Many U.S. experts that we stay in constant touch with have been complaining about that in our private talks.       

If the Republican becomes the new president, the U.S. policy towards Ukraine will not change much. It’s quite the other way around – their support will grow, including the support on the matter of providing lethal arms to Ukraine. We should treat this calmly; we know that our politicians promise a lot at first, and then, there’s not so much that becomes true. Even in such democratic country as the USA, the situation is pretty much the same.
