Obama was wrong about not providing Ukraine with lethal weapons, - Volker

On Saturday, October 28, Special Representative of the United States Department of State for Ukraine Kurt Volker discussed at a meeting with MPs in Kiev a number of issues, including the introduction of peacekeepers in the Donbas

According to People's Deputy from the Batkivshchyna faction Oleksiy Ryabchy, the Special Representative noted that there is now agreement on the position on this issue and how the initiative can be put to the vote in the UN Council of Europe.

Ryabch noted that the results of the negotiations will be reflected in the relevant resolution, reports Interfax-Ukraine .
He also noted that he questioned Volcker about a new draft law on Donbass, on which the Special Representative replied as follows:

"If Russia comes up against the reality of what's going on, there will be nothing supernatural in this - if things are named after their names," Volker's parliamentary speaker would suggest.

At the same time, he noted that the special representative of the State Duma did not express any requests or wishes for voting in the second reading of this draft law.

In turn, a MP from the BPP faction Volodymyr Aryev in Facebook after the meeting wrote that "it is possible that by the end of the year there will be a resolution of the UN Security Council on a peacekeeping mission".

Aryev said that, according to Volcker, Russia does not like the bill on the reintegration of the Donbas, and also that Ukraine is the only party that shows the desire to implement the Minsk agreements.

"Obama was wrong in the issue of not providing Ukraine with lethal weapons, and listed at least three factors that indicate that we can provide weapons," - said the People's Deputy, referring to Volcker.

The people's deputy from the People's Front faction Andriy Teteruk, in turn, said that the meeting also raised the issue of the US position on the Crimea.

"If the Ukrainian territories were not returned (a year or five years later), the United States will help Ukraine in their return, and the Crimea will never be recognized as Russian," Teteruk said.

Earlier it was reported that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and US Special Representative of the United States Department of State for Affairs of Ukraine Kurt Volker at their meeting in Kyiv on October 27 coordinated further steps to strengthen the international presence in the Donbass to stop Russian aggression and restore peace.

The Russian energy company Rosneft for 5 years froze the extraction of hydrocarbon raw materials in the Black Sea area through sanctions against Russia.

"According to expert estimates, in the conditions of negative macroeconomic conditions and sanction restrictions at the moment, the project is economically ineffective. In addition, there are no drilling rigs and drilling equipment in the market of petroleum service services that meet the requirements put forward by the company for the implementation of a well-drilling project in the South Black Sea licensed area, "Rosneft said.

On October 27, the State Department of the US issued a sanction list of Russian companies .

On August 2, Trump approved a document providing for new sanctions against Russia . It was reported that US sanctions would apply to all those who cooperate with Russia. Therefore, a number of countries have criticized this document.
