Ukrainian Foreign Minister: Trump and Putin to discuss Ukraine

US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will discuss the issue of Ukraine, and the release of detained Ukrainian sailors during their meeting, said the Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin in an interview with Ukrainian Channel 5.

"We spoke with the White House and the State Department about how the "Ukrainian track" should be covered (at the meeting) ... Of course, Trump himself will make decisions. However, I am sure that his materials will be composed correctly," Klimkin said.

"Ukraine will be mentioned in these materials, as well as the release of captured Ukrainian sailors," he added.

Also, according to the Minister, after June 25, Ukraine will start a new wave of pressure on Russia at international forums. These measures will be taken if the Russian Federation does not provide a report on the release of Ukrainian sailors to the UN International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea by June 25.

"It will be a short-term pressure to achieve results. Moreover, there will be medium-term pressure, that will result in the restriction of Russian Maritime and military activity," Klimkin said.

The Foreign Minister didn't report the details on the actions of Ukraine on this matter.

The US President Donald Trump plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, which will be held on June 28-29.
