The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin considers the statements of the White house in relation to the Crimea unexpected.

He stated this in an interview with “Voice of America”.

“They were certainly expected and we all worked hard to get this very strong message,” said the Minister.

According to Klimkin, the same thoughts expressed by the new U.S. representative to the UN at the last meeting of the security Council on the situation in the East of Ukraine. According to the Minister, this shows the consistency of the new U.S. administration.
