The state Department called the “rhetorical technique” the question of the meaning of support for Ukraine

The representative of US state Department Robert Hammond called “rhetorical technique” question his boss Rex Tillerson about the advisability of support of Ukraine from the United States, reports Bloomberg.

Earlier, the Minister of foreign Affairs of France Jean-Marc Ayrault, as reported by Reuters, said that Tillerson asked their European colleagues, why the American taxpayers should care about the conflict in Ukraine.

About it, according to Eero, the Secretary of state asked at the meeting of foreign Ministers “the Big seven” in Lucca, Italy.

“The question certainly would have made any European officials fear that President Donald trump can ease the sanctions and allow the former Soviet state back into the orbit of Russian influence even in a situation when tensions with Moscow are gaining momentum,” — said the Agency.
