The United States will take part in talks on resolving the war in Donbas and the de-occupation of the Crimean peninsula. A number of U.S. ministerial visits are expected to be made to Ukraine by the end of 2021, Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Olha Stefanishyna has said.

“I cannot disclose the details of the proposals. But I can confirm that the United States sees its key role in resolving the conflict in Donbas and returning Crimea. We hope that a number of visits will take place in the coming months; there will be a discussion at the level of foreign ministers and security advisors,” she said.

The Deputy PM noted that the U.S. authorities understand the importance of their role in ending the war in Donbas and returning Crimea to Ukraine, so they will take part in the discussion not only within the Normandy format but also in broader formats.

The Office of the President of Ukraine has not yet confirmed these words and clarified the details. According to some experts, this decision by the United States may become perhaps the most important result of the visit of the Ukrainian delegation led by President Volodymyr Zelensky to the United States.

As a reminder, earlier the President of Ukraine said that during a meeting at the White House, U.S. President Joe Biden received an offer to involve the United States in the negotiation process on Donbas.
