Some commentators are drumming up criticism in the wake of Poroshenko/Trump meet in Washington, influential lawmaker and Information Resistance NGO head Dmytro Tymchuk writes in Facebook June 21.
Pres Poroshenko met with the US president, vice-president, state secretary and key defense officials, he points out.
Such multitude of meetings is important to shape up Ukraine-US relations. No wonder, Poroshenko’s visit led to mass hysteria in Russia, he writes.
The effectiveness of his visit will materialize within the next months, and critics should take time to produce their estimates, he says.
Poroshenko assured after the talks that Ukraine has firm support from the United States.
Washington considers Russia an aggressor country. It must withdraw its troops from Ukraine, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said.
