U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is proud of U.S. President Donald Trump's administration policy on Ukraine. He said this in an interview with US TV channel WCSC-TV during a visit to the prestigious Cadet Corps in South Carolina on Veterans Day.

“I was part of America’s Ukraine policy, we were very clear. We wanted to make sure that the corruption that had been existing in Ukraine for an awfully long time was reduced, that (President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky - ed.) had the capability to do that, and then this president wanted to make sure to that Vladimir Putin wouldn’t be able to inflict hardship on the people of Ukraine. So we provided defensive weapon systems to the people of Ukraine. The previous administration chose not to do that. They chose to provide blankets. We gave them real weapons where they could fight against the Russians. I’m proud of what the administration did with us Ukraine policy.”
