WASHINGTON, Nov 10 – RIA News. The US hopes for an agreement between Kiev and Moscow, said Robert O'Brien, adviser to the American national security leader.
On CBS, he was asked if the United States intended to continue to provide military assistance to Kiev until Russia left Crimea and stopped "helping the separatists."
"I will not make assumptions about what will happen next. I hope that Russia and Ukraine will get along, there will be some kind of peace treaty or agreement. I will not give commitments forever about what we will do," O'Brien replied.
At the same time, he emphasized that Donald Trump became the first US president to send help to Ukraine with weapons in order to "resist the Russians." Moscow denies allegations of meddling in Ukraine’s internal affairs.
The delay in military assistance to Kiev in the summer of 2019 became one of the main aspects of the impeachment investigation to President Donald Trump. Democrats suggest that Trump made it a condition for assistance to allow Kiev to launch an investigation against Trump's political opponent Joe Biden and his family. Trump denies this.
Moscow has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to the conflict in Ukraine and the subject of the Minsk settlement agreements. The Kremlin also emphasized that the inhabitants of Crimea democratically, in full compliance with international law and the UN Charter, voted to reunite with Russia. According to President Vladimir Putin, the issue of Crimea is "completely closed."
