Wess Mitchell, the representative of the US Department of State who pays the visit to Ukraine claimed on the support of the US in the fight against Russian aggression and the reforms. He claimed at the briefing broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.
'We condemn the violence in the East and it is still a serious challenge. We were glad to see that a few important reform laws were adopted in Ukraine but there is still so much to do. You should continue to use the efforts on the creation of the Anti-Corruption Court and we emphasized the importance of the further work of NABU and SAP, we support the further reform of the energy sector and we think that it is important for Ukraine to fulfill all conditions to get the next IMF tranche', Mitchell claimed.
Also, he added that the US keeps considering and analyzing the possibility of the deployment of the UN peacekeeping mission in Donbas.
Also, the US considers the provision of Ukraine with the lethal weapons.
'We discussed the provision of Ukraine with the lethal weapons and it is one of the variants that we consider. We think that the sanctions are the important tool to increase the price for the aggression against Ukraine. We are sure that the sanctions are the direct consequence of the Russian aggression. And they will be lifted if Russian changes the conduct that led to them', Mitchell emphasized.
