Poroshenko, Trump to discuss increase in Washington's support for Ukraine, continuation of sanctions against Russia
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and U.S. President Donald Trump will meet to discuss the increase in the U.S. support, the Ukrainian reforms and the continuation of sanctions against Russia, Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze said.
"As for bilateral relations, there is already an increase in the budget of the United States for the next year with respect to Ukraine's defense support. I think Poroshenko's conversation with Trump will address the use of budget resources," she said answering a question from Interfax-Ukraine in Kyiv on Tuesday.
According to Klympush-Tsintsadze, the two presidents will discuss the Ukrainian reforms and economic cooperation, which is substantially expanding.
"They will also talk about extending the sanctions against Russia that were adopted at the level of both the Congress and the U.S. president. We've had very good dynamics since the first meeting of the presidents in June," she said.
