In a statement issued on Wednesday by the US State Department, Pompeo said that the U.S. is pursuing its long-standing principle of refusing to recognize the claims of the Kremlin on the territory seized by force, in violation of international law. He called on Russia to respect these principles and to end its occupation of Crimea.

We will remind, on July 16 in Helsinki, the long-awaited meeting of the presidents of the United States and Russia. At the press conference, trump and Putin has told that talked about Syria, Crimea, bilateral relations and Russian intervention in the American elections.

Russian President Vladimir Putin told Russian diplomats that he invited the President of the United States Donald Trump to hold a referendum in the Donbas. The proposal is to hold a referendum in the occupied territories of Donbas under international auspices, during which local residents need to speak on the status of those territories. Trump allegedly asked Putin to discuss the idea during a press conference after the Helsinki meeting to give him time to think.

The press Secretary of the national security of the United States Garrett Marquis said that the White house does not consider the idea of Russian President Vladimir Putin to hold a referendum in the Donbas. The official noted that the possibility for a referendum is not envisaged by the Minsk agreements. Moreover, the referendum on the uncontrolled territory of Ukraine will be illegitimate.

The leaders of al-Qaeda and the Taliban do not understand why they were not invited to the White house, Putin – because they are terrorists and enemies of America. The New Yorker this joke laughed at major international scandal of the week: after a meeting with Putin and the disastrous press conference, trump said that he had invited the Russian head to Washington. The Pentagon same time stated that Ukraine allocates an additional 200 million on defence.
