U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. is committed to supporting Ukraine and stamping out corruption in the country, denying that Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, oversaw a shadow foreign policy towards the country, Bloomberg reported.
“The foreign policy we were executing then is the same foreign policy we are executing today,” Pompeo stated.
According to him, Ukraine sits at the edge between democracy and tyranny in the easternmost part of Europe.
U.S. Secretary of State also mentioned his upcoming visit to Ukraine and said that Trump's administration had done more for Ukraine than the Obama administration had done, which was a reference to Trump’s decision to sell lethal weaponry to the government.
