US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has never seen evidence that Washington was trying to persuade Kiev to take any action in exchange for financial and military assistance. About this diplomat reported in an interview with ABC News.
"I have never seen anything like this in the decision-making process I attended, decisions about opportunity to provide assistance from the US Department of Defense and the State Department to reject Russia," said Pompeo.

As previously stated by Mick Mulvaney, the interim leader of the White House apparatus, Washington's decision to suspend military assistance in Kiev of nearly $ 400 million was linked to corruption in Ukraine and partly because the Democrats were putting pressure on that country. Subsequently, Mulvani denied the information that the freezing of funds for Kiev is linked to investigations against the Democrats.
