The head of the Ukrainian presidential office, Andriy Yermak, believes that the USA should get involved in the settlement of the conflict in Donbass
“Today there is the Normandy format, in which there are four parties (Germany, Russia, Ukraine, France). The accession of a new participant to this format is a decision of these four participants.But I am absolutely sure that the USA, as a strategic partner of Ukraine, should and can play one of the key roles in stopping the military conflict and in settling the issue with the return of Ukrainian territories”, – Yermak said.
Speaking about the Minsk agreements, the head of the Ukrainian presidential office stressed that six years after they were signed, there were no tangible results in the settlement of the conflict.
“To be honest <…> I sometimes think that they were signed with the purpose and with the understanding that it is impossible to implement them”, – Yermak believes.
