The United States Department of State does not believe that the country's participation in the Normandy Format talks will help in solving Donbas escalation. This was announced by U.S. State Department Counselor Derek Chollet, as RBC-Ukraine reports.

"At the moment, I think the U.S. participation in the Normandy Format talks will not probably not help solve the problem. The problem is Russia, as Russia is the aggressor, the one who creates the problems," he said.

According to the Counselor, the United States wants to support the peace process and force Russia to stop its actions.

"President Biden made this clear to Putin at their meeting in Geneva a month ago. One of the issue of a quick meeting between the presidents [Biden and Zelensky] will be a joint work to reduce tensions, as well as American support of Ukraine that it needs to protect itself," Chollet pointed.

As it was reported earlier, Joe Biden expressed his commitment to the Minsk agreements during his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva.
