In his opinion, the new administration of the better teams of the former American leader Barack Obama.
“I have it (the team trump – ed.) is currently estimated from the point of view, first of all, Ukrainian and Ukrainian-Russian relations. And in that sense, I evaluate it very positively. As I said originally – it will be much better than the Obama administration. I associate with this administration a lot of hope. Of course, if Ukraine is to play it right, which I’m not really sure yet,” said Ponomarev.
He said that Ukraine should take the initiative, as the new White house administration doesn’t know what to do with it.
Earlier, the MEP Elmar Brok said that the proposal of the President of the United States Donald trump “exchange” partial lifting of sanctions against Moscow on reducing the nuclear arsenals of the Russian Federation – it means to give Russia the Ukraine.
