According to the US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, the United States appreciates the level of Ukraine’s sacrifices for the sake of its European future.
'The USA are encouraged by Ukrainian sacrifices for the sake of its European future. 10,000 people who have died in the war against Russian aggression. Just due to the fact that the Ukrainians would like to choose their own future themselves...' he said at Kyiv’s international conference "Ukraine - EU: turning challenges into possibilities' on Friday.
Pyatt recalled that the United States supported the territorial integrity of Ukraine, and President Barack Obama had declared the inadmissibility of changing current borders in the modern world and the inadmissibility of annexation of another state.
'Putin has made a strategic mistake in regard to Ukraine, he has underestimated the solidarity among all the countries of the Big Seven and all the European partners,' the diplomat noted.
According to him, Ukraine is moving towards European future, the Ukrainians have united around this aim and can choose their own future with no interference from the outside.
