Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Grigory Karasin on Friday, February 9, said that the participation of the United States in the settlement of the armed conflict in the Donbass in the framework of the “Norman Quartet” together with Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany will not contribute to the exit from the Ukrainian crisis.
In response to the question about whether it is appropriate to connect Washington to the “channel format” to resolve the military conflict in the East of Ukraine, the representative of the Russian foreign Ministry said that “the format change to anything will not.”
“Unfortunately, the Ukrainian government wants to solve all their problems by proxy. This is the path that leads to nowhere, and he is doomed to failure. But Russian-American cooperation, “Surkov Walker” (the Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov and special representative of the US state Department, Kurt Volker) works. Let’s hope he will bring some new trends and positively influence the General atmosphere in the crisis”, — said Karasin.
