Volker: Washington will not associate the decision of the Donbas issue with the de-occupation of the Crimea

Volker: Washington will not associate the decision of the Donbas issue with the de-occupation of the Crimea



The United States is not going to depend on a settlement of the situation in eastern Ukraine with the Crimea, despite the fact that they do not recognize the accession of the peninsula to Russia.

This was stated at a briefing by the United States Special Representative on Ukraine Kurt Volker, according to Censor. NET with reference to TASS.

"If we have a chance to make progress in one of the conflict areas (the east of Ukraine)... then we should ensure progress, and not to doubt through the Crimea," the diplomat said.

He also added that the US's attitude to the annexation of the Crimea remains unchanged.

"We ... do not recognize this and will not recognize this," Volker said.

The US special representative also noted that the West would be ready to mitigate the sanctions applied earlier against Russia in the event of a situation in the Donbass. The diplomat stressed that if Minsk agreements were "fully implemented, then sanctions would be mitigated in proportion to that."

He also suggested that the international community would not allow the conflict in the Donbass to extend for several decades, for example, as a Cypriot one.

"I do not think that someone wants the same decision as in Cyprus. I do not know how many years ago there are peacekeepers in Cyprus, and I do not think that Ukraine wants it. She certainly wants to restore sovereignty and territorial integrity, so she has a great incentive for the implementation of the Minsk Agreements,"- added Volker.

Trump may propose approving a grant for Ukraine to purchase lethal weapons in the US



Advisers to US President Donald Trump can propose to him to approve the option of granting Ukraine $ 47 million in grants for the purchase of American weapons to curb Russia's aggression.

This is reported by ABC News and with reference to the staff of the State Department, informs Tsensor.NET.

"Donald Trump may be offered $ 47 million grant approval to allow the Ukrainian government to buy US defense weapons to curb aggression by pro-Russian separatists," the statement said.

According to the publication, the National Security Advisor, General Herbert McMaster, provided three variants of the Ukrainians' arms, as outlined in the interagency note that came last week to the National Security Council.

Of these three options, the Department of State and the Ministry of Defense support $ 47 million in procurement of weapons.

As you know, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary General James Mattheys discuss the issue of providing Ukraine with weapons, in particular anti-tank missiles, requiring approval by the president and congress.

Special Representative of the State Department for Ukraine Kurt Volker has refused to comment on a possible solution.

"There has been a military conflict over the territory of Ukraine over the past three years ... it is entirely logical to defend the country, but it is also wise for others to help the countries defend themselves," he said.

"We are trying to see if it is possible to create conditions for the United Nations peacekeeping forces to locate the territories in eastern Ukraine, which would restore confidence between the parties, at least to the international forces of the UN, and this would create an opportunity for Ukraine move forward in the implementation of the Minsk agreements, in particular, in conducting the elections, which they can not do now, "quotes Volker Derzhdip.

, September 5, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed the opinion that the presence of UN 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 corresponding draft resolution for consideration by the UN Security Council.

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

Russian Post-Preds to the United Nations, Vasyl Nebenzha reported that the Russian side had sent a draft resolution on the deployment of peacekeepers in Donbass to the UN Secretary-General and head of the UN Security Council.

In Russia they were told that Trump could "change" Ukraine in talks with Putin

US President Donald Trump, during a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, can take action on Ukraine, agreeing to transfer it to North Korea.

This is stated in a column on "Apostrophe" by Russian political scientist Dmitry Oreshkin.

"Where it is quite difficult to find points of contact, this is Ukraine. Probably will talk about it, but it is unlikely to negotiate. Not in the image will be said, Ukraine for Trump - not a primary headache. And if you have a headache, it's mostly connected with Manafort. There is a very weak hint that both sides would need to froze the conflict in Ukraine, so that there would be fewer murders on both sides, and then it will be visible. The United States has already made a step towards Ukraine, Volker clearly and rigidly formulated everything. Putin does not like it - so he will complain. Let's say, in our opinion, we will introduce international observers to the line of differentiation. I think that Trump will not agree. Or will it agree, but under some conditions: let's say, we are changing Ukraine to North Korea. For Trump North Korea is more important, not Ukrainians will be told"- says a political scientist.
