Ambassador Markarova: No friction between Ukraine, U.S.

Relations between Ukraine and the United States are now at the highest level throughout the 30 years of Ukraine's independence.

This was announced by the Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States, Oksana Markarova, who spoke with CBS.

She denied media reports that there were frictions between the Ukrainian and American authorities over the assessment of the Russian invasion threat, Ukrinform reports.

“There is no friction. I mean, look, we can have some discussions and we can have differences in opinions but the United States is our strategic partner and, I would even say, strategic friend No. 1,” the ambassador said.
