In the United States, they said that it was behind the noisy statements of people of Trump about Russia's aggression against Ukraine

Zenon Zawada, a political analyst at Concord Capital, explained what the statements of US Special Representative in Ukraine Kurt Volcker meant.

He announced this in a commentary on Radio Liberty.

"Volker wants to be successful, does not want to be a diplomat, which will be forgotten in 2-3 years, so he has to influence the situation, should offer something new. The statements we heard this weekend are a sign that he is ready to offer something new."- said the expert.

In his opinion, the "mine process" should be replaced. At the same time Zavada stressed that "Norman format" has already been exhausted. It is possible that the United States can join the new talks.

"It looks like Trump wanted to make a breakthrough in relations with Russia, since he does not have broad support, then it will not." He will continue to pursue the same policy America is currently pursuing. All the fears that existed when Trump became president has already Have no reason", - summed up the analyst.

Supply of arms to Ukraine can change the behavior of Moscow - Representative of the United States

Washington is actively considering the issue of possible supplies of weapons to Ukraine, which could change the behavior of Moscow, in particular, on the conflict in the Donbas.

This was stated by the Special Representative of the United States Department of State for Ukraine Kurt Volker in an interview with the Air Force.

"Defense weapons that would allow Ukraine to protect themselves, for example, anti-tank, would help stop Russia threatening Ukraine," Volker said.

He clarified that, in his opinion, this step would not be a provocation against Russia, but rather a "new strategic dialogue" with the Kremlin.

"I do not intend to predict the fate of this decision, this is a matter for further discussion and decision-making, but I think that the arguments that this will be a provocation for Russia or the encouragement of Ukraine actually will hold back this decision," he added.

Recall that on July 23, a special representative of the State Department and the US ambassador arrived in the area of ​​fighting on Donbass in the district of Avdeevka.

On July 7, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appointed Kurt Volcker as a Special Representative for Ukraine. This is a new post for the United States. Volker is planned to coordinate the efforts of the State Department for the Regulation of the situation in Ukraine.

Later, Tillerson said that the United States had appointed a special envoy for Ukraine on Putin's request.

Deliveries of American weapons to Ukraine will "postpone" the resolution of the conflict in the Donbass, - Peskov

Deliveries of American weapons to Ukraine will "postpone" the resolution of the conflict in the Donbass, - Peskov

In the Kremlin, they reacted to Volcker's statement about the possibility of supplying American weapons to Ukraine.

Deliveries of American weapons to Ukraine will be "removed" from the moment the conflict is resolved in the Donbas. This was stated by the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov, reports TASS.

"We have repeatedly said that any actions that will provoke tensions on the dividing line and, on the whole, provoke a situation that is already difficult, will only distance us from the moment of settling this intra-Ukrainian issue," Peskov said.

Earlier, US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker said that Washington is actively considering the issue of arms supplies to Ukraine to help it in the fight against the Russian-backed separatists in the Donbas. According to Volker, the supply of arms to the Ukrainian army could change Moscow's behavior.

"Defensive weapons, which would allow Ukraine to protect itself and, for example, withdraw tanks, would help stop Russia threatening Ukraine," he said.

Volker is looking for a way to create Russia's "permanent headache through Donbas

The newly appointed US special representative in Ukraine, Kurt Volker, is looking for a way to put pressure on Russia because of the continuing intensification of the war on the Donbass.

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Olena Zerkal told the Public about this, after her meeting with the US special envoy.

According to her, Volker already has an idea about the situation in the Donbass and is currently "busy looking for possible scenarios."

"He saw that this conflict is not in a condition where everything is quiet and peaceful, and that it is really a conflict that really takes place between Ukraine and Russia. And this stage of exacerbation, which is constantly. It is a very difficult task for him, but in my opinion his task now is to find a strategic decision how to create for Russia a situation in which this conflict between Ukraine and Russia will be a headache for her, which will not leave her all the time " , - noted the Mirror.

Recall that on July 23, a special representative of the State Department and the US ambassador arrived in the zone of hostilities in the Donbass.

After the visit, Volker stated that arms supplies to Ukraine could change the behavior of Moscow. At the same time, he did not argue that Washington would go to the transfer of weapons to Kiev.

The Kremlin said that providing Ukraine with American weapons would divert the situation on the line of demarcation.
