United States does not link the settlement of the situation in the Donbass and the Crimea
Washington is not going to link the settlement of the situation in the Donbass and the Crimea, despite the fact that it does not recognize the annexation of Crimea to Russia, said at a briefing for journalists the special representative of the United States Ukraine Kurt Volker.
“If we have a chance to make progress on one of the conflict areas — East of Ukraine, we must move forward and not hesitate because of the Crimea”, — quotes his words TASS.
Mr. Walker stressed that this does not change the attitude of the American administration to the status of Crimea.
The special representative of the President of the United States confirmed that the West is ready to cancel part of sanctions against Russia in the event of settlement in the Donbass. He noted that it’s a coordinated position of the United States and the European Union.
