U.S. leader Donald Trump personally decided to apply pressure on Russia because of the aggression in Ukraine. Kurt Volker, the U.S. Special Representative in Ukraine said this as quoted by Ukrinform news agency.

'This administration has been tougher against Russia, acting in support of Ukraine more than the previous one,' he stated.

According to him, a lot of people in Russia hope Trump would change his policy against Russia. 'I can assure everyone it's not true,' Volker said, adding that the U.S. seeks for a peaceful solution to Donbas conflict. It's not about sanctions against the Kremlin, but about restoring the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine, the U.S. Envoy in Ukraine said.

Earlier, the official reported that Washington plans to make the anti-Russian sanctions mode harder every month or two, as the Kremlin's aggression in Donbas goes on. 'We've tried to increase the pressure that we're putting on Russia in order to get them to negotiate towards a solution. That includes keeping sanctions in place in the U.S. and increasing these sanctions periodically, over time. And that's a track we and the Trump administration will continue to be on. And you'll see additional sanctions coming to play - every two months or three months, as we've seen,' he said.
