U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis condemned Russia's recent attack on Ukrainian ships, and criticized China for "predatory economic behavior" during a speech Saturday at a defense forum in California.
Asked if U.S. -Russian ties had become more strained since he took over the Pentagon a year ago after Trump became president, Mattis said, "There's no doubt the relationship has worsened". He recognizes that what he does is actually creates hostility against his people. He stressed that Russian Federation tried to interfere in mid-term elections in the United States last month - the same as it did in 2016, but the American authorities will take all necessary to continue to reliably protect our democracy.
"We'll do whatever is necessary to defend them", Mattis later added.
"What we witnessed this weekend is yet another reckless Russian escalation" of what began with Russia's seizure of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and its ongoing support for separatists in eastern Ukraine, said outgoing U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley in response to the actions.
"What we see, what Putin is doing, not observing global agreements... we are dealing with someone who we just can't trust", - said Mattis, calling Putin a "slow learner" (translated from English. - bad student, tokodai, obtuse).
Russian Federation continues to violate global agreements to which the United States cannot trust the leadership of this country.
