Volker, Surkov

The latest developments in Donbas conflict and compliance with Minsk agreements are the key topics of today’s negotiations in Minsk. On Monday, the Belarusian capital hosts the meeting of Russian presidential counselor Vladislav Surkov and U.S. envoy in Ukraine's affairs Kurt Volker.

It is their first meeting ever. During President Obama’s rule, Surkov negotiated U.S. Assistant Secretary of the State Victoria Nuland. Volker replaced her as the key U.S. envoy in the Ukrainian affairs.

As is known, the U.S. are not involved in either Normandy and Minsk format; however, they participate in settlement of Ukraine-Russia conflict.
