"We need a fresh approach to the issue of security. Russia has expressed concerns about the security of Russian-speaking population of the East of Ukraine, but frankly speaking, the only territory where Russian-speaking people suffer is the territory that is under control of Russian troops, so if there is another way to guarantee security people without the presence of Russian troops, it would probably be better for everyone, " Volker said.
Volker noted that during the meeting with Russian officials, "we also touched on the topics on which we will not be able to reach an agreement."
He expressed the opinion that "a fresh approach" needed to resolve the situation in the East of Ukraine.
"We agreed to think about security scenarios, and talked about the political process," he said.
As it was reported earlier Kurt Volker assured that the US will not make the individual agreements towards the Donbas conflict without the participation of Ukraine and the European countries.
