The US is ready to help stop the fighting in the Donbass, but “Russia must first choose peace.”
This was stated on Tuesday, February 13, by the special representative of the US State Department on Ukraine, Kurt Volker.
A necessary condition for the end of the war, according to Volker, is Russia’s decision to choose peace.
Volker noted that three years after the Minsk agreements in the Donbass, fighting is continuing.
“Yesterday was the anniversary of the signing of the Minsk accords – three years later, the war is still going on. The US is ready to help in the cessation of hostilities, but Russia must choose peace,” Volker said.
It’s a merry go round.
