U.S.-based Ukrainian journalist Myroslava Gongadze says there are people in President-Elect Donald Trump`s team who support the supply of lethal weapons to Ukraine, according to Espreso.TV.
”Trump[`s entourage] has got many pro-Russian representatives who can be tapped to head major security agencies. But there are people beside him who stand for arming Ukraine. It`s not that unambiguous,” she told Espreso.TV.
Amid U.S. elections, the subject of Ukraine was raised in the context of Russia, and Hillary Clinton acted as a defender of Ukraine.
”Trump said he was ready to go to Moscow even prior to his inauguration. Therefore, risks are high. As we remember [his] statements about possible recognition of Crimea as Russian territory,” she said.
In her words, the main question is who in Trump`s team will be authorized to take decisions.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the U.S. presidential election took place on November 8, 2016. Its results were announced on November 9: Trump won 289 electoral votes, his rival Hillary Clinton got 218 with the minimum required set at 270.
