Rudolph Giuliani, the informal adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump and former New York mayor, said this in an interview with Novoye Vremya portal.
"Ukraine that is free from Russian occupation is one of the important interests of the United States, and Trump will insist on this interest and achieve it," Giuliani said.
He has not agreed with the opinion that the Trump administration is very soft in relations with Russia. According to him, such impression could come from some of Trump's comments during the election campaign. However, having become a president, Trump delves into the subject of international relations.
"Trump ordered to bomb the Syrian military base, and it is clear that in his steps he places the interests of the United States ahead of the interests of Russia," Giuliani said.
