US should never forget that Russians annexed one fifth of Ukraine, - Pompeo. VIDEO

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Wednesday testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on his agency’s budget request for the 2019 fiscal year.

As reported by Censor.NET citing C-SPAN, questions from the panel of lawmakers touched on many aspects of foreign policy, including U.S. diplomatic strategy and the State Department’s staffing levels.

"I think Russia's invasion and criminal annexation of part of Ukraine, Crimea, is going uncommented on by the rest of the world too often. So, if you could elevate that in any way, I would greatly appreciate it," Rep. Steve Chabot said speaking to Pompeo.

"The last trip I took in my previous role was actually to the Donbas to see the challenges presented to Ukraine and its people there. And this is a very, very serious matter. The Russians annexed one fifth of their country. We should never forget that that's the case," Secretary Pompeo replied.
