“They are out of question” –Kurt Volker on Russian peacemakers in Donbas

US state department’s special envoy on Ukraine Kurt Volker said Oct. 28 he excludes participation of Russian peacemakers in peace-keeping mission in Donbas, Rada lawmaker Mustafa Nayem writes in Facebook.

For Volker, the peace-keeping mission must be a military, not monitoring, mission operating on the Ukraine-Russia border currently uncontrolled by Kyiv, Mustafa Nayem writes.

Volker expects the Security Council resolution on the peace-keeping mission in Ukraine will be ready by the year-end, with the control of the border being its main issue.

The US envoy also spoke about Northern Stream gas-pumping project,

 “It’s a purely political project. There is no political dimension to it as there are other routes for pumping the Russian gas to Europe. The only goal of building a new pipe-line is to punish Ukraine and cut its revenue from gas transit,” Karl Volker said.
