Vice President of the United States Mike Pence during his Georgia visit on August 1 said the U.S. leader, Donald Trump, had called on Russia to “cease its destabilizing activities,” the White House press service reports.


“And with the sanctions that President Trump will sign this week, codifying sanctions that have been in place by the United States, our country is sending a very clear message and calling on our European allies to join us in a very clear message that we mean what we say and say what we mean; that Russia’s destabilizing activities in Ukraine, their support for rogue regimes like Iran and Syria and North Korea, that their posture has to change,” Mike Pence said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Pence said Donald Trump would sign legislation to strengthen and codify the United States’ sanctions against Russia “very soon.”
