United States, Russia have different views on situation in Ukraine - Pompeo

The U.S. administration and the Kremlin have different views on the process of resolving the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, despite the desire of Donald Trump's administration to bring relations closer with Russia.

U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said this during his visit to Sochi on Tuesday, May 14, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"We have places where we just have very different views. You mentioned Ukraine. Look, we have different views on how Ukraine ought to proceed," Pompeo said at a meeting with journalists, the transcript of which was published by the U.S. Department of State.

He stressed that the initiative to improve U.S.-Russia relations is "about trying to find solutions, compromises, places where there is overlapping interest so you can make progress at unlocking some of the most difficult problems that are facing us."

Pompeo held talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi on Tuesday.
