Congressmen who head the support group of Ukraine in the US Congress call American President Donald Trump to stand side by side with the allies in NATO faced with permanent threats from Russia and aggression of Russia in Ukraine. According to the joint statement of Marcy Kaptur and Sandy Levin, the congressmen from the Democratic party and Brian Fitzpatrick, the Congressman-Republican, Voice of America reports.
It is noted that such a statement was promoted by the joint press conference of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.
‘Subordinate behavior of the President towards President Putin really concerns us, the co-chairs of the bipartisan support group of Ukraine. The USA can’t consider the acts aimed at easing of democratic institutions in the USA, and also the allies abroad,’ reads the statement.
It is stressed that the illegal invasion of Russia into Ukraine is an attack on the peace and security of Europe. Also, the Congressman paid attention to the Russian attacks against the Ukrainian sovereignty.
‘We are also concerned about the attack of the Russian Government on Ukrainian sovereignty, including cyber attacks on agencies, aggression in Donbas and illegal occupation of Crimea,’ they claimed.
Earlier, the Senator of the Democratic Party called to listen to the interpreter of Trump at the meeting with Putin.
Reportedly, American President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin met in Helsinki and have been talking one-on-one for more than one hour.
The meeting was criticized by mass media and politics. They called Trump ‘Putin’s poodle’ and ‘traitor’, and the meeting as a whole was a "shame."
