‘We welcome U.S. Assistant Secretary A. Wess Mitchell in Ukraine. It is another manifestation of the United States firm support of Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and reforms. The visit also aims to urge the Ukrainian government to continue with critically important reforms,’ says the message.
Previously, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced his assistant’s visit to Ukraine, as he spoke with Ukraine’s leader Petro Poroshenko on the phone. On November 1, Tillerson met with Russian ambassador in Washington Anatoly Antonov; the officials discussed restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity.
