Trump meets Poroshenko for brief 'drop-in' visit

20 June 2017

President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in the Oval Office of the White House, Tuesday, June 20, 2017, in Washington.

President Petro Poroshenko stopped by Tuesday for a brief photo opportunity with Trump following meetings with Vice President Mike Pence and the national security team.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the death of 22-year-old Otto Warmbier after his lengthy detention in North Korea was a "total disgrace", and said if the college student had been returned home to the USA earlier, "I think the result would have been a lot different".

He said that five of the dead had been formally identified and it would be a slow and painstaking task to identify the others. Cundy said that five people reported as missing in the fire had now been found and were safe and well.

It's still not clear what Poroshenko will get for Ukraine from the meeting with Trump.

The move was meant to punish Russian Federation over issues including alleged meddling in the election, which Moscow denies, annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region and support for the government of Syria in that country's six-year-long civil war.

Poroshenko said he hopes the two countries can engage in "effective collaboration".

The U.S. signaled substance behind the symbolism as well, with the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Asset Control announcing they have added new Russian individuals, including two officials, and other companies to its sanctions list.

In all, Tuesday's action targets 38 individuals and firms.

Poroshenko praised the U.S. Senate for the decision to introduce new sanctions against Russian Federation, saying that sanctions were a civilized mechanism "to force the aggressor to get away from Ukraine", withdraw troops and equipment. Americans are prohibited from doing business with them.
