"In contacts with Western diplomats are voiced, such as readiness to discuss replacement Zakharchenko and other carpenter, and even compromise agreed with the partners of the" Normandy format "figures. But this readiness, according to informants, not related sensitivity to the wishes of Berlin and, moreover, Kyiv. There are pragmatic reasons: "leaders" a little presumptuous. This, incidentally, is one reason for cutting funding "republics." However, hypothetical bias odious "chapters" Ordo and Orloj Moscow takes as a demonstration of their kompromisnosti" - he said.

In addition, the Russian Federation, according to the author, agreed to discuss the possibility of arming the OSCE and its right to carry out their functions not only during but also after the elections in ORDLO hypothetical, but offered Moscow the size and mandate of the mission Kyiv categorically not satisfied.

Thus, the bargaining position of Russians, according to Rakhmanin also changed.

"Is not the main requirements were mandatory pensions Kyiv residents ORDLO full unconditional abolition of all forms of trade blockades and cancellation of official ATO" - the author notes.

"Russia still does not want to give a key issue - proposals not that border control Kyiv and even permanent monitoring of the OSCE mission, this Moscow blocks. Without this, all talk of elections," special status "de-occupation, reintegration et cetera devoid of any meaning. nonsensical they are and without full ceasefire and a complete withdrawal of weapons - the starting point of the Minsk agreements, "- he concludes.

Recall, September 22, 2016 US House of Representatives approved the bill "On the maintenance of stability and democracy in Ukraine", which, apart from the issue of sanctions regulates the supply of lethal defense weapons Kyiv.

In accordance with the established procedure, the bill also had to approve the upper house of parliament - the Senate - and signed by the President of the USA.

However, the bill "stalled" in the Senate in the hands of Senator Bob Corker Republican.

The Senate version of the bill, which were only spivsponsoramy Democrats nominated to the upper house of December 9, just days before the end of its work.
