According to Huntsman, the situation in Ukraine remains to be difficult and there is any noticeable progress.
‘Possibly, Ukraine is the only important issue that can restore the bilateral relations between Moscow and Washington. At least, there is such perception in the US’, he is sure.
He also added that the Americans paid close attention to the invasion of Ukraine and this issue was in the top news. According to this, the settlement of the Ukrainian issue can be the important point for the at least partial restoration of the Russia-US relations.
As we reported Kurt Volker, the US Special Envoy to Ukraine reckoned it’s very likely that active fighting will continue a year from now in Ukraine.
“I’d say it’s at least 80 percent. There’s a chance that there won’t be, but the most likely scenario is that this continues,” he added grimly, noting that more than 10,000 people in eastern Ukraine have been killed since the fighting broke out,” Volker said.
