The US can not become a party to the negotiations in Normandy format to resolve the conflict in Donbas, because Russia will be against it, - stated Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze.
At the same time, she noted that France, Germany and Ukraine coordinate their actions with the United States, so we can say that the United States is still present in this format, but not physically.
"I do not see how you can achieve the physical presence of the US, due to the fact that Russia will be strongly against it. In order to be able to expand this format, you need to obtain the consent of all parties.", - stressed Klympush-Tsintsadze.
