Special envoy of the US state Department in Ukraine Kurt VolkerCC BY 2.0 / U.S. Embassy Kyiv Ukraine / United States Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker, Kyiv, July 24, 2017Спецпредставитель the state Department in Ukraine Kurt Volker proved to be the real Ostap Bender from diplomacy: beautiful “dissolved” the Parliament on the extension of the law on the special status of Donbass. However, the MPs are good.
Urgent news from “Alice in Wonderland”. Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Oleksandr Vilkul has exposed the state Department special envoy for Ukraine with Kurt Volker. Turns out, he was threatened with withdrawal of sanctions against Russia, if the Parliament will extend the law on the special status of Donbass. Doubts about the need to extend the law in Parliament was, for raged particularly patriotically minded part of the Deputy the public considers offensive and unacceptable to the square, even the mention of any “special status” of the breakaway region. But after arguments Volcker all doubts instantly dissipated, and the law was extended. And then the document was signed by Petro Poroshenko.
And it’s not even in the law itself, which has one goal – to simulate the alleged peace plan of Kiev in respect of Donbass and its commitment to the Minsk agreements. Any special status of the region in real life did not appear by reason of the impracticability of the articles of this legislation, including requiring the withdrawal of “illegal armed groups” from these territories and the holding of elections under the Ukrainian legislation.
More importantly. Worked on 100 percent of the threat, Kurt Volker, once again proved the total absence of political sovereignty in Ukraine. How much would the Kiev authorities have declared their independence – a penny the price to these words. Any “Patriotic feeling” of the authorities, contrary to the current interests of Washington, immediately disappears to cost them tyknut American “partners.”
