“The events in Ukraine affect the whole of Europe and, incidentally, in Russia too. Depend on Ukraine and the fate of democracy in Russia. Therefore, it is crucial for Ukraine to be sovereign and make their own independent decisions,” said Taylor.
In turn, the Ukrainians, the former Ambassador says that most Americans are not well versed in international politics and Ukraine.
“They is evocative of the Dignity Revolution, Orange revolution, Russian intervention in Crimea and the Donbass. But they can’t be constantly aware of all the events. … Ukraine will never be able to constantly present in the top main American news. But if Ukraine becomes a truly democratic country, it is an unconditional ally of the United States,” said Taylor.
