Trump is more willing to influence the situation in the Donbass than Obama - Volker

US President Donald Trump talks to Russia rigorously and ready to help with the settlement of the conflict in eastern Ukraine
This was stated by the Special Representative of the US Department of State in Ukraine Kurt Volker in an interview with the publication "Mirror of the Week."

He noted that, despite the fact that Trump promised to improve relations with the Kremlin, he now acts more rigorously and pragmatically about this issue.

"Trump has already signaled greater readiness to influence the process of peace settlement in the East of Ukraine." The White House's previous White House warned against this issue, giving preference to Merkel and Putin's initiative, resulting in the "Geneva format" swept to "Normandy," Volker said.

He added that the American leader wants to talk with the Russian authorities, but she must change the behavior that has already become accustomed.

introduction of peacekeepers will make it possible to hold elections in the occupied part of Donbas - Volker

US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker said that under effective international monitoring facilities in the Donbas local elections.

He said this in an interview with the "Mirror of the Week".

"They (election-ed.) Can not be held until Ukraine receives the necessary access to the territory. This is one of the reasons for the slowdown of the Minsk process: on the one hand, there is an agreement to hold elections, on the other - under the current conditions, their realization is unrealistic. If an acceptable way of attracting international peacekeeping forces is found, then there will be a security tool, a means of physical control of the territory. Under such conditions, under the conditions of effective international monitoring, organization of local elections is possible, "he said.

According to Volcker, a series of elections should be held.

"Of course, you need to resolve a number of issues related to the organization of the election process accurately determine who is entitled to vote as the return of IDPs and enable them to participate in elections. And perhaps it should be more than one election than just a one-stage vote, it should be a series of elections, "- he said.

Volker: US involvement in the "Norman format" is inappropriate

Volker: US involvement in the "Norman format" is inappropriate

The key players in the "Norman format" must remain Germany and France.

According to Centsor.NET, Kurt Volker, Special Representative of the United States Department of State for Ukraine, said in an interview with DT.UA.

"It is important that Germany and France remain the leading players in this process." It is convenient: Berlin and Paris use their opportunities within the framework of the Minsk process to discuss specific details: where should the cease-fire line lie, how and when to take away heavy weapons, how to counteract sharpening at specific hot spots, etc. These are definitely important things, but in resolving these issues, the US involvement, I think, would not add anything, "the diplomat said.

In his view, the United States can play an important role in focusing the vision of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the strategic dimension of the problem he faced in Ukraine.

"The US can tell Putin: if you want, we can help, if you do not want, we can guarantee that you will be worse," Volker added.

Previously, it was reported that the US State Department is studying options for joining the "Norman format" and negotiations on the implementation of the Minsk Agreements in order to resolve the situation in Ukraine.
