Kurt Volker, the U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine is going to visit the combat area in Donbas again - during his seventh visit in this office, slated for late April - early May. Volker himself said this in his interview with Voice of America.

'I want to visit the eastern part of the country so as to see the conflict zone on the Ukrainian side. I want to meet the Ukrainian counterparts in Kyiv, but before that happens, I'd love to hear Russia's response, in order to realize what we can discuss', Volker said. 

The official added he is satisfied with the West supporting Ukraine, but disappointed with the fact that 'there are no respective steps from the Russian leadership'.
