The US has accused Russia of delaying the conflict in the Donbass

Washington believes that Russia specifically prolonging the conflict in the Donbass. This opinion was expressed by the special representative of the United States Ukraine Kurt Volker. He wrote about this in his microblog on Twitter.

Walker commented on a video provided by the monitoring mission of the OSCE, which depicted several columns of trucks crossing the Russian-Ukrainian border in the Donbass. Where they passed, no checkpoints, argued the representatives of the organization. Entry was posted August 10.

Walker on his page posted a video again and was accompanied by the caption: “This is another way in which Russia deliberately uses to prolong the conflict and maintain the clashes in the East of Ukraine.”

Special envoy says that Moscow is blocking the work of the monitoring missions, as well as ignores all the efforts of the international community to establish peace in the Donbass.

In may 2018, Walker visited the Donbass. Then he said that the people of the region are willing to return to the region under the control of official Ukrainian authorities. After talking with residents of the Kiev-controlled parts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, Walker came to the conclusion that they all want. “It is completely contrary to the Kremlin’s rhetoric,” he said.
