Pompeo said that Moscow’s attempts to cause destabilisation should be met with strong opposition.
He referred to Moscow’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 and Russia’s seizure of three Ukrainian navy ships in the Kerch Strait last November, an incident that escalated tensions between Kiev and Moscow.
Pompeo arrived in Poland on Tuesday ahead of an international conference in Warsaw on the Middle East.
