The American leader said that Washington has no idea what is actually happening in Ukraine, but promised that the US government will certainly find it out.
“We do not know exactly about what is happening there,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News, referring to the situation in the east of Ukraine.
The journalist asked Trump if he was not offended by the fact that the situation in the Donbas deteriorated a few hours after his talks with Vladimir Putin, and the US President replied in the negative.
After the reporter pointed out that the situation in the Donbas exacerbated by the onset of the Russian troops, Trump said Washington does not believe that the f Donbas militants forces controlled by Russia.
“We do not know what kind of forces they are. Who controls them and whether they are controlled at all? It happens, but we will soon know about it. We’ll see,” the US President said.
Previously it was reported that the US President Donald Trump during more than an hour phone conversation with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on January 4 said that the United States intends to work towards the restoration of peace along the Ukrainian border.
