In Moscow, at a meeting between US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration Dmitry Kozak, the parties discussed the war in Donbass.

“They confirmed that the Minsk agreements remain the only basis for a settlement. During the talks, the US position was confirmed, voiced in Geneva, that without agreeing on the special status of Donbass as part of Ukraine, significant progress in resolving the conflict is hardly possible. Taking into account the coincidence of approaches on this principled position, we agreed on the continuation of mutual consultations, “the Kremlin said in a comment following the meeting.

In turn, Nuland called the talks held in the Kremlin administration “productive and useful,” according to Russian media.

Nuland’s visit to Moscow

Victoria Nuland arrived in Russia on a three-day visit on October 11. On Tuesday, she met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov; Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin was also present at the talks.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on October 12,  the Kremlin did not rule out a  meeting between Kozak and Nuland to discuss the issue of Ukraine.

  • There will not be any special status for a core territory of the ukrainian state. Donbas, other than the Crimea, never had nor claimed autonomy before the brute aggression by the RuSSian Federation. So, a big NO here!

  • “…it was announced that the Minsk agreements remain the only basis for a settlement.”
    If mafia land wants the Minsk agreements so badly, they certainly are not good for Ukraine. Indeed, they never can be implemented if Ukraine values itself to be a sovereign nation. Those who have concocted this trash had only the interests of mafia land in mind.

  • Russia claims to be a mediator, not a participant. Yet, they still have troops in the Donbas. Russia has no intention of implementing anything. Their signature on any document is worth less than the ink it took to make the stain.
