Ukraine must give Donbas special status and amnesty rebels – Kurt Volker

Addressing a conference on security, US special envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker urged Ukraine to give Donbas a special status and partially amnesty the rebels, Ukrainian News reports Nov. 28.

Russia must ensure security in Eastern Ukraine, he added.

 “Pres Putin has not taken an appropriate decision what is to be done in Donbas,” Volker said.

Meanwhile, Volker supports giving Ukraine defensive lethal weapons.
