#Commentary of Valery Skorokhodov on proposal of United States to support new format for resolution of conflict in Donbass
The US is ready to support an alternative Minsk format for the resolution of the conflict in Donbass. This was stated by the spokesman of the U.S. Department Heather Nauert. This statement was preceded by the words of Rex Tillerson on the possibility of resolving the crisis outside the Minsk agreements.
ʺIf the parties come to an agreement to establish another mechanism on their own and it is successful, we will be ready to support it,ʺ Heather Nauert said.
These two successive statements suggest that the United States want to launch some other platform, which is different from the Minsk one, and blame Russia for everything that happens in Donbass in order to protect its Kiev puppets from impact.
Clearly, if the Kiev regime is not willing to implement at least the first paragraph of the Minsk ceasefire agreements, what is the point of starting negotiations in other formats, unless the objective is to enter into new arrangements on advantageous terms for Kiev?
According to the statistics provided by the OSCE, there are already more than 10 000 dead civilians of Donbass. The Armed Forces of Ukraine increases the number of casualties every day.
Do the United States realize how many casualties new ‘peace-making proposals’ can bring?
