Special envoy of the US state Department in Ukraine Kurt Volker does not consider the possibility of a trip to Donetsk and Luhansk controlled by separatists. He said this on Tuesday, may 15, at a press conference in Slavyansk, Donetsk region, which led to channel 5.

“I would love to go there, when there peace is restored Ukrainian control. I’m not going to do anything that would legitimize the so-called political entities – the Republic because it is an artificial entity,” said Walker.

He also believes that the conditions for the restoration of peace can be created through the introduction of a UN mission.

“We want Russia takes seriously the proposal of a peacekeeping mission under the UN mandate, making the conditions for peace and full implementation of the Minsk agreements. When Russia is ready, we are ready to meet either with Surkov or someone else,” – said the representative of the state Department.

Walker also said he believes the best protection of interests of the Russian speaking population of Donbass, the withdrawal of Russian troops from the territory of Ukraine.

“The best defense of the Russian-speaking population in the Donbas is the full withdrawal of Russian troops,” – said the American diplomat.

He stressed that the situation in the Donbas not caused by civil or ethnic conflict, but is the result of direct invasion of Russia.

“There is no conflict among the Ukrainians nor the ethnic and civil strife. This conflict is a result of direct invasion of Russia in Eastern Ukraine. Russia directly controls the armed forces in the region and exercise political control over the occupied territories,” said Walker.

Earlier it was reported that the special envoy of the US state Department in Ukraine Kurt Volker was found in the frontal area of Donbass with the commander of the operation unified forces Sergey Nevim.
