“While Lavrov at a press conference at the Russian Embassy in Washington playing the fool and happily talks about a new stage in relations with the United States, then trump makes a 180-degree turn and immediately after this (after the meeting with Lavrov. – Ed.) takes the White house Klimkin in company with Chaly (Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States. – Ed.). In diplomatic language this means the following: first, that the Ukrainian issue rises on the agenda trump; second, after several hours of rejoicing at the good Lavrov poured a bucket of cold water because he certainly was not aware that Klimkin will also take on the highest level,” – wrote Berezovets.

He also said that now Kiev has a strong ally in the team’s trump – Vice-President Mike Pence, who became the curator of the Ukrainian theme, taking over the reins from Joe Biden.
