The US is satisfied with the work of the Normandy format and is ready for meetings to resolve the situation in Donbas in new formats. This was stated by Special Representative of the U.S. Department of State for Ukraine Kurt Volker, as Interfax-Ukraine reported.

“If there are any other meetings, we will be happy to take part in them and support these attempts,” said Kurt Volker.

He also added that the United States does not plan to consider the issue of Russia's return to the G8, while there will be no progress on the part of the Russian Federation in resolving the situation in Donbas.

“This issue will not be considered immediately, but - yes, it will be one of the urgent if there is progress. In 2014, Russia was expelled from the G8 club - precisely for the annexation of Crimea. I would like to see how it all comes back. I would like to see, how Russia leaves Crimea, and this would create excellent opportunities for renewed cooperation. But I do not expect this to happen in the near future," Volker said.

Earlier it was reported that the U.S. State Department Special Representative said that the United States is ready to join the Normandy format if there is a need for this.
 
Volker commented on the proposal of Ukraine's president Volodymyr Zelensky to include representatives of the United States and the United Kingdom in the Normandy format.

"If there is a need for a wider format, of course, we will join it," Volker said.

Earlier, it was reported that representatives of the United States, France and Germany planned to hold consultations on the Normandy format.

It was also reported that the United States supports the efforts of the President of Ukraine to achieve peace in Donbas, and agree to take part in it, but any new format for resolving the conflict in the region needs consent of all parties.
