(Worthy News) - Russia has worked against U.S. interests in Ukraine, Syria, and in other hot spots across the globe, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a blistering takedown of Moscow that comes on the eve of a key United Nations summit in New York City.
In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” that airs Sunday morning, Mr. Pompeo said the Trump administration so far has not been successful in pushing back against many of Russia’s destabilizing actions around the world. Russia is backing dictator Bashar Assad’s forces in Syria, forcibly annexed the Crimea region of Ukraine, and has taken a host of other steps that are in direct opposition to U.S. foreign policy interests.
“Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd made the case that Russia has not been helpful on any international front anywhere in the world, and Mr. Pompeo agreed. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
