US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland called her meeting with the Deputy Chief of Staff of the Presidential Executive Office of the Russian Federation Dmitry Kozak, who is also a participant in the Normandy format at the advisory level, as "productive". This was announced by the press secretary of the US Embassy in Moscow Jason Rebholz on the Twitter page.
"We had a productive discussion with Dmitry Kozak about our shared interests, along with those of Ukraine, France, and Germany, in the full implementation of the Minsk Agreements," the message says.
It is noted that during the talks Nuland in the Kremlin also discussed the restoration of peace, stability, and Ukrainian sovereignty in Donbas.
As we reported earlier, during talks in Moscow, US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland allegedly advocated a special status of Donbas to resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
"During the talks, the US position voiced in Geneva was confirmed that without agreeing on the future parameters of autonomy or, in other words, the special status of Donbas within Ukraine, significant progress in resolving the conflict is hardly possible," the message says.
