The Administration of U.S. President Barack Obama in the nearest time is going to discus with Ukraine providing of concessions, which could soften Ukraine’s stance on the issue of Donbas conflict and will contribute to the peaceful resolution, sources close to President Petro Poroshenko affirm, LIGA.net reported.
The idea of such initiative came in virtue of a desire to leave positive results of Obama`s administration work and to prepare solid ground for future U.S leader, being selected in November, to find a compromise in the question how to provide stable peace for Ukraine. U.S. Vice President Joe Biden announced the proposal to the Ukrainian presidentduring the UN General Assembly in New York in September. Poroshenko in his turn tried to explain to Mr Biden that Ukraine is not ready to cross red lines due to reasons which take place inside of the state.
According to sources in the Ukrainian Presidential Administration and Foreign Ministry, the U.S. vice president tried to persuade Poroshenko to go for a compromise with Russia in line with the script, written at the negotiations held on parallel tracks to the Minsk talks – the so-called American-Russian format (bilateral talks between U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Russian president’s aide Vladislav Surkov).
The next two weeks will be an essential period which will determine Ukraine`s path of development for future, say the sources from the circles close to President Poroshenko.
"The West will put pressure on us and twisting our arms. In the United States, they want to leave a positive legacy. Therefore, Nuland flew to Moscow today. They will put pressure on us in the coming weeks, imposing some frankly unacceptable solutions regarding the road map".
