The President of the United States Donald trump at a meeting with Ukrainian leader Petro Poroshenko seriously misspoke by using the word “the” along with the name of Ukraine, which unknowingly changed the context, since the phrase “the Ukraine” is offensive for Ukrainians, pointing out that the name of the state derives from the word “Okraina” .

Clause trump said the American edition of the Washington Post, considering that trump after his speech can take on the outrage of the Ukrainians, if the incident was publicized, according to “Russian conversation”.

As the newspaper writes, the “the” the Ukrainian government asked the Western media not to use along with the name of the state immediately after independence so as to avoid reference to the etymology of the name “Ukraine” comes from the word “Okraina”.

American journalists do not rule out the possibility that trump could say “the Ukraine” by accident, however this may fall out of favor to the Ukrainians, who may find that the American leader thus questioned the independence of Ukraine and its territorial integrity.

As previously reported, “Russian conversation”, Donald trump met with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko at the White house on Tuesday, June 20. Meeting with participation of heads of the two States became the first after joining trump in the position of President of the United States.
