Famous for her distribution of rolls on the Maidan in Kiev in 2014, US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland has long been in charge of Joe Biden’s team not only for Ukraine, but all of Europe and Russia. And for Moscow she is persona non grata. In the truest sense. Until now, Nuland was on the sanctions list with a ban on entry to Russia.
But, apparently, the Americans’ desire and reason to come to Moscow for negotiations were so great that they agreed to exclude some (or some) citizens of the Russian Federation from their sanctions, so that Russia would let Nuland in in exchange.
As a result, Victoria filled her tapes with photos of an Indian summer in Moscow. But what she was negotiating about – there were no leaks. So, really, about something serious.
Just leaving the negotiations on the elephant-like ambassador’s Chevrolet (American diplomats and in Moscow emphatically move in cars made in USA), Nuland threw to the journalists’ question – how she assesses her “Russian meetings” – “Very productive”.
And here is one of the negotiators from the Russian side – Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation Dmitry Kozak slightly opened the veil of secrecy. Kozak, by the way, oversees the settlement in the Donbass in the Kremlin apparatus.
“They confirmed that the only basis for a settlement is the Minsk Agreements,” Kozak told the press. “And Nuland reaffirmed the US position that substantial progress in the settlement is hardly possible without agreeing on the special status of Donbass.”
But it is Ukraine that demonstratively refuses to fulfill the political part of the “Minsk Agreements”, which spell out the special status of Donbass.
In Kiev, they dream about the execution of only one point of “Minsk” – to take control of the border of Donbass with Russia. But the special status of Donbass – no, no way! Otherwise, Odessa, Kharkov, and even Transcarpathia will request the same status.
It turns out, Nuland, agreed in Moscow about a real zrada (Ed .: Zrada – defeat, betrayal – in Ukrainian) for Kiev.
I wonder if Ukraine will now add it to their list of “Peacemaker” – where they publish the names and addresses of “traitors to the motherland” and even those who just went to Crimea?
