The U.S. Secretary of state in Kyiv, albeit for two hours, it’s still positive.

The results of the negotiations we will know after his visit,” – said Tarasyuk.

The politician stressed that the visit Tillerson suggests that the U.S. is interested in Ukraine.

“You should pay attention that Tillerson will visit Ukraine almost at the same time with the Secretary-General of NATO and Secretary of state of the United Nations.

And the visit to Kiev Tillerson says that US interest in Ukraine. And last but not least, this interest is associated with the Russian-Ukrainian war. Most likely, it will be one of those talks”, – added ex-the Minister.
