The visit of the US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry to Ukraine that was planned on August 29 is postponed to November. The organizing committee of Naftogaz Ukraine reported this due to the fact that Perry should take part in the discussion of the Naftogas strategy.
'We decided to postpone the presentation and discussion of the Naftogaz strategy that were planned for August 31 to November. We think that it is very important to attract the key international partners of Ukraine at the highest level. However, the US partakers of the event, including the Secretary of Energy Rick Perry and the Head of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation Ray Washburne were forced to reconsidered the plans and they are not able to visit Kyiv due to the Hurricane Harvey', the message said.
The US Secretary of Defense James Mattis visited Ukraine on Independence Day, August 24. He brought the military equipment for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
