The Russian side is not ready to resolve the situation in the East of Ukraine, said the American diplomat

The war in the Donbass began Russia, which invaded the Ukrainian land, and now slows down the process to resolve the conflict.

This was stated in an interview with DW, the special envoy of the USA in Ukraine Kurt Volker.

He doubts that after the assassination of the leader of the so-called “DNR” Alexander Zakharchenko Russia would withdraw from negotiations on the Donbass.

“I still maintained contacts with his Russian counterpart (assistant of the RF President Vladislav Surkov – Ed.). We disagree on very fundamental things, but, nevertheless, we still keep in touch. As far as I know, French and German colleagues also stay in touch (with the Russian partner in the negotiations – ed.),” said Walker.

At the same time, the American diplomat said that the Russian side, in principle, is not prepared to act to resolve the situation, and this is the main problem.
