Kurt Volker, the U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine's Affairs plans to visit the Ukrainian capital over the coming weeks. Volker said this during his speech at the Senate Committee for Foreign Affairs.
His visit precedes the negotiations of the two presidents in Washington.
Volker also said Trump called Zelensky to congratulate him on the night after the second round of the presidential election in Ukraine. He sent him an invitation to visit the White House, but the sides have to align the dates of this visit.
Previously, Volker said he was ready to meet with Russian officials to negotiate on Donbas-related issues. He said this during the report at the Subcommittee on Europe and Regional Security Cooperation of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The hearing of the Subcommittee concerned the situation of Ukraine and Russia's malign actions.
"I would like to meet with my Russian counterparts in the near future, but I do not know what form that will take at the moment. I am willing to meet with them to discuss a way forward if Russia is serious about making progress', he said, commenting on the chance of talking to Russia's representatives on solving the situation in Donbas.
