 Washington cornered by conflict in eastern Donbas, - Ukraine’s envoy to settle situation in country

"Washington is between two fires (in the context of resolving the conflict in the east of Ukraine). On the one hand geopolitics demands an alliance with Russia due to Syrian issue. On the other hand the situation brings the U.S. into conflict with the Russian Federation because of war in Ukraine."

Ukraine's negotiator in Minsk talks to resolve situation in the Donbas Roman Bezsmertnyi expressed such opinion in an interview with Censor.NET.

"Berlin and Paris take every effort for this conflict (the conflict in the east of Ukraine - Ed.) to be resolved as soon as possible. The tactics in this process is Ukraine's sole power. No one has ever dictated it to us. But the problem still must be solved," Bezsmertnyi said.

Meanwhile, according to Bezsmertnyi, Washington is between two fires in the context of resolving the conflict in the Donbas. "On the one hand geopolitics demands an alliance with Russia due to Syrian issue. On the other hand the situation brings the U.S. into conflict with the Russian Federation because of war in Ukraine. Someone thinks it's our problem, although it is not true ... It is the Washington's one. They are very well aware of it just as Paris and Berlin realize that there is no key to the rapid solution of Ukraine's issue," the politician said.

"Leading French analysts wrote an appeal a few days ago titled "Guys, wake up!" This shows that European intellectuals are very well aware of the situation and the fact that it has regional and geopolitical nature. They also know that its solution is an appropriate response to Russia's actions, but not attempts to investigate events in the East of Ukraine," Bezsmertnyi said.
