NEW YORK, November 29. /TASS/. A senior member of the Ukrainian parliament and a former prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, has made an appeal to Western leaders not to leave Ukraine.
"My message to the global leaders is as follows. Look, we are still doing our jobs. Ukraine needs to be on your radars," he told Wall Street Journal. "We do understand that you guys have a number of troubles… But please do not abandon us."
According to the paper, the former prime minister apparently has assumed the role of Kiev’s unofficial envoy to the West. He recently met with US Vice President Joe Biden in Washington, German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin and is set to hold consultations with EU member states in Brussels, the paper said.
Yatsenyuk also said Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko should tread carefully with US president-elect Donald Trump, setting out Ukraine’s case against Russia over the Ukrainian conflict and offering options for co-operation.
He expressed hope that Trump’s cooperation with Moscow will be limited.
"Russia and the United States were, are and will be adversaries," he said.
