US policy in support of Ukraine will not change after presidential election

The United States supports the vision that is whole, free and peaceful Europe.

U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Jeffrey Payette said that the country’s policy in support of Ukraine will not change after the presidential election in November. About it reports “Voice of America”.

The Ambassador also noted the solidarity between the United States and Europe in supporting democratic forces in Ukraine.

Existing for 25 years, U.S. policy will not change despite what will be the results of our elections,” – said Payette.

He stressed that the United States supports the vision that is whole, free and peaceful Europe. So, according to Payette, the partnership and US-EU in the implementation of this common desire is crucial.

“Probably the most important idea is that only the Ukrainian people can choose their future. Decide can’t do in Moscow, and in no way, in the Kremlin,” – said Payette.

According to him, one of many strategic mistakes of Putin in Ukraine is that it underestimated the solidarity between all the countries “Big seven” and all the European partners.

Earlier, the White house announced the official nomination of diplomat, Marie Yovanovitch for the post of United States Ambassador in Kiev. The current Ambassador Jeffrey Payette transferred to work in Greece.
