Former Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko called to “de-Putinize” Russia while recently talking to hosts in New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar.
He said that Ukraine is trying to demilitarize Russia and destroy the state but he called on to ‘de-Putinize’ the state.
Poroshenko said that the nomination of the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine is of symbolic importance and Ukraine welcomed that.
“We're waiting for that for many, many months,” he said.
The former president said that he is looking forward to working with Bridget Brink, the new candidate for the ambassador position, and is waiting to welcome her in Kyiv.
In a separate press conference, the White House announced that President Biden will nominate Bridget Brink as the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine. The new appointment of the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine will send an important signal to the country that has been calling out to the western world for help since the war began two months ago.
