White House Spokesman Sean Spicer, at a regular press briefing on Tuesday, June 20, stated that the U.S. Administration sees Moscow as the aggressor in the conflict in eastern Ukraine and expects that it will withdraw its troops from these territories.

“I think we’ve been clear that, yeah,” he said when asked would U.S. President Donald Trump like to see Russia get out of eastern Ukraine and does he see Moscow as the aggressor in this conflict.

He stressed that “obviously that’s part of the reason that there are sanctions, is because until they are out of Eastern Ukraine, we’re going to continue to have sanctions on Russia. And we believe that that is Ukraine’s -- a part of Ukraine and so, therefore, until -- those sanctions will remain”.

The White House spokesman also recalled that this issue was discussed during the meeting between Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and U.S. President Donald trump earlier on Tuesday.
