The President of the United States has never made pro-Ukrainian statements

Summary of Disinformation

Donald Trump, the President of the US, has given Ukraine to Russia. Trump has never made pro-Ukrainian statements or comments. He keeps his silence.


Ukraine is not for the US to give to Russia. Ukraine is a sovereign state, not controlled by any foreign government. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world, including the EU. Relations between the US and Ukraine are bilateral relations between two independent countries.

The president of the U.S Donald Trump has publicly supported Ukraine many times.  For example, Trump cancelled the meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Argentina in 2018 because of the conflict in the in the Sea of Azov. “Based on the fact that the ships and sailors have not been returned to Ukraine from Russia, I have decided it would be best for all parties concerned to cancel my previously scheduled meeting”, he declared.

In the interview with the CBS American Channel on 14 October 2018, President Trump stated that his Administration pursues much tougher policy of deterring Russia than the Administration of its predecessor Barack Obama. ”I have given Ukraine arms and anti-tank equipment. Not Obama”, said Trump.

The U.S recognised Ukraine as an independent state on 25 December 1991. U.S. policy is centred on realising and strengthening a stable, democratic, prosperous, and free Ukraine, more closely integrated into Europe and Euro-Atlantic structures.
