Bolton: Zelensky’s election creates opportunity for peace in Donbas

The election of President Volodymyr Zelensky creates a new opportunity for peacemaking in Donbas, U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton has informed on Twitter.

Bolton said that he had a meeting with U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker, during which they discussed the situation in Ukraine.

“Amb Volker and I met today to discuss Ukraine negotiations and agreed that President Zelenskyy’s election creates new opportunity to push for peace in Donbas – a key step to improving U.S.-Russia relations – but it’s critical that Russia do its part and engage seriously,” the White House advisor wrote on Thursday.

As reported, 3,332 civilian casualties were recorded in Donbas, and more than 7,000 were injured between April 2014 and June 9, 2019.
