    Ukraine is ready to work with the administration of US President-elect Donald Trump and hopes that the issue of the Ukrainian crisis remains a priority in Washington, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Monday.

    KIEV (Sputnik) — He expressed hope that the Ukrainian issue would continue to be "among the first priorities" for the new US administration.

    Biden, in turn, said he expected the Trump administration to want to be Ukraine's partner.

    "We count on succession in our common work on the part of the new US administration… We are ready for effective and fruitful cooperation with the new administration," Poroshenko said after talks with outgoing US Vice President Joe Biden.
