In particular, the administration Trump wants to restart talks on a peaceful settlement of the situation in Ukraine. This may be for the Secretary of State Rex Tillerson start of thwarted plan to improve US-Russian relations. At the same time, the newspaper notes, the idea Tillerson is still in the early stages.

Trump's Administration to renew talks on Ukraine peace solution

Tillerson’s idea is to restart a version of the peace negotiations that the Obama administration was engaged in last year, hoping that new circumstances and personalities might produce better results, according to U.S. officials and outside experts.

Censor.NET reports citing an op-ed article by Josh Rogin in The Washington Post.

In their Oval Office meeting in March, President Trump told German Chancellor Angela Merkel that the Ukraine crisis was Europe's responsibility and that the United States wouldn't get heavily involved, according to two officials briefed on the discussion. Only two months later, the Trump administration is reversing course and planning to re-engage on Ukraine in a significant way.

For Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who is leading the behind-the-scenes effort, Ukraine is where Trump's so-far thwarted plan to improve U.S.-Russian relations can be kick-started. Although still in its early stages, Tillerson's idea is to restart a version of the peace negotiations that the Obama administration was engaged in last year, hoping that new circumstances and personalities might produce better results, according to U.S. officials and outside experts.

There are skeptics across the administration who believe pursuing any type of Russia reset in a domestic political environment dominated by investigations of Russia's interference in the U.S. political system is a fool's errand. But Trump and Tillerson are determined to give it try.

European officials, for their part, are cheering. "We very much appreciate that the new administration will be more engaged in the Ukraine issue. In the beginning they seemed not to be so interested in this issue. That's changed a lot," German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel told The Post after meeting with Tillerson on May 17.

Trump's shift became evident on May 10, when he held a widely reported discussion with Russia Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and a less-noticed meeting with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin.

Although the White House and State Department declined to comment, U.S. officials and others confirmed that Tillerson has had multiple discussions about the way forward with Lavrov. There is also a robust interagency process to chart the new strategy, and the office of Vice President Pence is also involved.

Tillerson is looking to tap a special envoy at the State Department to manage and lead the new Ukraine effort. That new envoy would reinvigorate the U.S.-Russian diplomatic channel with Vladislav Surkov, known as the Kremlin's "gray cardinal." President Barack Obama's assistant secretary of state for Europe, Victoria Nuland, was ultimately unable to make progress through that channel last year.

What's different now, officials say, is that Russian President Vladimir Putin can no longer bide his time waiting for a more favorable U.S. administration, as he did last year. The German and French governments are not getting more Russia-friendly any time soon.

But Trump's domestic problems due to the Russia scandal complicate everything. Congress is chomping at the bit to apply more sanctions to Russia, not lift them. Lawmakers in both parties are going to be hugely skeptical of any deal Trump tries to strike with Moscow. , Original in Ukrainian / на українському
