U.S. Deputy Secretary of State: ‘No Country Is a Bargaining Chip’

VOA’s Myroslava Gongadze, wife of the murdered journalist Heorhiy Gongadze, interviews Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg, who visited Kyiv in late April.

Interestingly, Steinberg fails to mention presidential candidate Obama’s view of Ukraine as being ready for a NATO Membership Action Plan.

On YouTube, VOA Ukrainian Service offers a collection of must-see interviews for Ukraine watchers.

Outgoing U.S. Ambassador William Taylor echoes Steinberg’s “don’t worry” position. In the interview below, he explores the benefits of a Yushchenko-Tymoshenko truce, talks about his role in having the U.S. government switch from Kiev to Kyiv, and discusses Obama's travel schedule.
