Pompeo expressed unwavering U.S. support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity once more.

Earlier President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky expressed the hope that the U.S. will be able to join the negotiations on Donbas during the meeting with Bolton. He noted that Ukraine would welcome the joining of the U.S. to the Normandy Format.

Later Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko stated that first, the Normandy format negotiations (Ukraine, Russia, France, Germany) should be held, and only after this US should join the Donbas conflict settlement process.
