“The problem again lies in Russia's actions and policies. If there are signs that it is serious and is willing to actually end the conflict, I am sure it is very important for President Trump. The format is less important than the content. But if such a meeting is useful, we would certainly consider such an option. And if a new format is created to involve the US and someone else, for example, the UK, France, Germany, we would be ready to support such meetings as well,” Volker said in an interview with Tyzhden.ua Ukrainian online media outlet.
When asked if he has noticed any changes in Russia's policy towards Ukraine after the recent elections, Volker noted that different signals come from Russia.
"Moscow has offered to issue passports to Ukrainian citizens, which is an absolutely provocative step that contradicts our goal of negotiations in Minsk. At the same time, there is some progress regarding the ceasefire. In addition, Russia withdrew its forces near Stanytsia Luhanska [a village in Luhansk region]. So we have some positive and some negative things," Volker added.
