US appoints new handler for Ukraine and Belarus

She is Robin Dunigan, who had previously been chargé d’affaires in Austria.

Dunigan will be responsible for US policy towards Eastern and Central Europe at the State Department.

From 2014 to 2017, she worked in the State Department’s Bureau of Energy Resources as Undersecretary for Energy Diplomacy. In recent years, she worked at the US embassy in Austria. She was first deputy head of the embassy and then the US chargé d’affaires in that country.

“Dunigan specialises in energy. During the Obama presidency, she was the US undersecretary of state for energy diplomacy. Apparently, this will be presented in Kiev as the State Department putting special emphasis on the situation with Nord Stream-2″. By the way, it also means that Kent’s long-time curator of Ukraine is stepping away from the Ukrainian direction”, –  the Telegram channel Country Politics reported.
