S. Doroshenko, PolitNavigator – translated by J. Arnoldski
Ukraine would benefit if the Donbass conflict resolution process went through a larger number of international negotiating formats. This would allow them to stall negotiations and force opponents to accept Kiev’s terms. This was stated in an interview to RBK-Ukraine by Petro Poroshenko’s representative at the negotiations of the Contact Group in Minsk, Olga Ayvazovskaya….
Ayvazovskaya also voiced what is practically Kiev’s official point of view on the US elections and called them “crucial” for Ukraine. She stated:
“The United States remains Ukraine’s partner, and it would be good to involve them in negotiations just like all of our neighbors. But whether this will be possible in the near future is difficult to determine…For us, the presidential elections in the United States and France are key. In Germany, elections will be held in autumn, 2017. It is in Ukraine’s interests for Hillary Clinton to win the US elections. This is a fact.”
