Censor.NET reports referring to ZN.UA citing former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Steven Pifer.
Pifer believes Clinton will continue to support Kyiv and German Chancellor Angela Merkel's efforts in the Minsk process. She is also likely to retain economic sanctions against Russia for as long as the Kremlin's behavior remains unchanged.
Moreover, she may take a bit harder stance against Russia. For example, depending on a situation, Clinton's administration may consider providing lethal military aid to Ukraine, which Obama's administration has consistently rejected, Pifer says.
Speaking of Republican candidate Donald Trump's possible victory, the diplomat noted the U.S. policy may change not only towards Ukraine but also NATO, particularly in the light of the billionaire's scandalous rhetoric.
