Mike Pompeo, the U.S. Secretary of State arrived in Ukraine to meet with President Volodymyr Zelensky. Yehor Bozhok, the Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine posted that on Twitter

"Ukraine welcomes a great friend from the USA. Secretary Pompeo did personally a lot to support us in difficult times of Russia’s aggression. We look forward to his fruitful work in Kyiv, where he’ll meet President Zelensky, Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko and Defense Minister Andriy Zahorodnyuk", reads the message.

Earlier, Pompeo accused an NPR reporter of lying about whether a conversation he initiated with her had been deemed off the record, a charge that NPR denied. The Washington Post agency reported this.

Pompeo’s statement, however, did not address NPR’s explosive account of the conversation — that he shouted at reporter Mary Louise Kelly, used expletives, indicated that she had questioned him about Ukraine under false pretenses in a just-completed interview, and asked her, “Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?”

The exchange came as Pompeo, President Trump’s longest-serving and closest senior adviser on national security, has been criticized for his conduct related to both Ukraine and Iran and his disregard for congressional and media questions about it.
