Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Ukraine, claiming it is under the external control of the US. Conspiracy theory without any evidence.
The claims are based on a speech given by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on “The Lessons of 1989: Freedom and Our Future,” in Berlin, Germany, on November 8, 2019 in which he answered the following question "How committed is the United States to peace and stability in Ukraine? Without any preconditions?" By the project, he means working on peace and stability in Ukraine as can be seen in the transcript. His exact words were as follows:
"Very. Very committed. Yes, yes. It’s a project we have been working on. I remember I was at the Munich Security Conference when I was a member of Congress in Kansas, and I remember pushing the topic, at this time, was whether defensive weapons system would be provided to the Ukrainians. This must have been 2015 or ’16.
And I remember, and I remember Germany deciding it was a bad idea and America deciding it was a bad idea, President Obama deciding it wasn’t something he wanted to do. In fact, President Trump has now not once, not twice, but three times come to provide the tools so that the Ukrainian people can protect themselves from Russian aggression in the Donbas.
We’re proud of that. We think it makes sense. We think it makes sense for freedom. We think it makes sense for Europe and we think it makes sense for the world and Ukrainian sovereignty. We’re very clear about our position on the invasion of Crimea that happened in the previous administration and how it is we’re going to work to develop a prosperous Ukraine that is less corrupt and capable of moving itself towards the West".
Furthermore, Ukraine is a sovereign state. The relations between the US and Ukraine are bilateral relations between two independent countries. The USA recognised Ukraine as an independent state on 25th December 1991. The US's policy is centred on realising and strengthening a stable, democratic, prosperous and free Ukraine, more closely integrated into Europe and Euro-Atlantic structures.
