Tony Blair in Kyiv gave advice on how to achieve peace in the Donbas



Ex-Prime Minister of the Great Britain said: "It is always difficult to negotiate peace, it's a difficult process, and its success depends on the readiness of ordinary people, not just politicians

It is possible to achieve peace only if all parties to the conflict sincerely seek it, according to British Prime Minister Toni Blair (1997-2007).

"It is possible to reach peace only with those partners who want it. With people for whom the talks are not a gambit of deception, or a way to gain time to prepare for the next phase of the conflict, "he said during a lecture on the memory of Shimon Peres at the 14th Annual Meeting of the Yalta European Strategy ( YES) organized by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.

Tony Blair added that this rule is relevant for the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

"Looking at the resolutions submitted to the UN by Russia, it is important to understand - it comes from a partner who really wants reconciliation, is it a tactical maneuver? To make the world rooted in partnership must be real! "- he said.

According to Tony Blair, one more condition for the establishment of peace is the fairness of the principles and the fairness of the organization of the future.

Ex-Prime Minister of Great Britain also said: "It is a difficult process to negotiate peace always with enemies, not friends, and its success depends on the readiness of ordinary people, not just politicians.

Russia launched an initiative on peacekeepers in the Donbas through consistent US pressure - Volker



Special Representative of the United States Department of State to the Ukraine talks on issues of Ukraine Kurt Volker believes that the reason for Russia's proposal to introduce a UN peacekeeping mission to the Donbas is the consistent pressure from the United States, in particular, with sanctions, to raise the issue of Ukraine's defense armament and the impossibility of improving relations between the United States and the Russian Federation to resolve the conflict.

This is reported by Tsensor.NET with reference toInterfax-Ukraine.

"I think there are several reasons, one of which is our" Norman format "talk about how we can be useful. The status quo is not good for anyone. The status quo is unstable and will deteriorate. I think what you will see in the context of the conflict itself, how the conflict developed this year: we see sanctions; we see the discussion of the issue of providing security assistance to Ukraine; we see the concern and clarification of information about Russia's involvement in it all , President Trump speaking President Putin, that relations between the US and Russia are not This issue will not be resolved, "he told reporters at a briefing in Kiev on Saturday, answering a question about the reasons for the Russian withdrawal with the UN peacekeeping initiative right now.

According to him, there is a deterioration of diplomatic relations between the countries.

"I think that the combination of all these factors has created a situation where it is worth trying to resolve the conflict. I think that Russia began to understand that its invasion and occupation of Ukraine led to Ukraine becoming more united, nationalistic, and western-oriented and an anti-Russian knife before. This is clearly not what Russia wanted," said W. Walker.

Recall that on August 22, President Poroshenko announced that he intends to present to the General Assembly an idea on the deployment of a peacekeeping mission in the Donbas in September.

On September 5, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed the opinion that the presence of United Nations peacekeepers in the Donbas would be in favor of resolving the conflict in eastern Ukraine, and instructed the RF Ministry of Foreign Affairs to make a draft resolution for consideration by the UN Security Council.

Irina Gerashchenko , thefirst vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, a representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group on the settlement of the situation in the Donbas, said that the introduction of a UN peacekeeping mission on the line of collision in eastern Ukraine can not be the language, the peacekeepers must be introduced to the entire territory occupied by Russia.

Volker denied the arguments against providing Ukraine with American weapons

Volker denied the arguments against providing Ukraine with American weapons

US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker does not consider it logical to argue against the provision of high-precision American lethal weapons to Ukraine, which are heard in the information space.

He stated this in a comment to journalists at the fields of the Yalta European Strategy conference, reports Espresso .

As you know, opponents of such weapons believe that this will make Russia more aggressive.

"But Russia has already invaded Ukraine, Russian occupation (Ukrainian territory) continues, war is underway, and now it is necessary to stop the conflict, to restore Ukraine's sovereignty throughout the territory," he said.

"To say that the conflict can spread is a non-constructive approach," insists the US special representative.

He also cited James Mattis, head of the Pentagon, that "every country has the right to self-defense" and that "defensive weapons do not threaten anyone except who is an aggressor." "Ukraine must have the best weapon to protect," he added.

At the same time, Volker did not predict when such weapons could be provided.

Earlier Volker declared Washington's demands for peacekeepers in the Donbas.

Also, the US Special Representative considers ORDLO occupied by Ukraine.
