U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker called the latest discussion on deploying UN peacekeepers to Donbas with Vladislav Surkov, Advisor to Russian President, a step back, according to his interview for Politico

“Our third meeting, as you said, was a step back. They went back to their original proposal again. I don’t know what the next step after this is. It could be that that happened for completely other reasons having nothing to do with Ukraine, just where we are in our U.S.-Russian relationship. It could have had to do with the lack of a bilateral meeting between President Putin and President Trump,” he said.

As we reported earlier, the next meeting between the officials is scheduled for December. Last time Surkov and Volker met on November 13 in Belgrade. The issue of the UN peacekeeping mission was also discussed. According to Surkov, the U.S. suggestion on the mission contained 29 paragraphs, and Russian delegation “found acceptable” only three of them.
