The United States may appoint a special envoy to resolve the situation in Donbass, said the head of the Ukrainian president’s office, Andriy Yermak, in an interview with Liga, published on Monday, April 26.

“It is very important that such a person appears. The rapprochement of our position and closer cooperation in the military-defense sphere are also being discussed. And plus the support by the United States of Ukraine for obtaining the MAP (NATO Membership Action Plan – Ed.), ”He said.

According to Yermak, the appointment of a special envoy can happen rather quickly, as “close contacts at the level of the secretary of state and administration” continue.

Earlier, on April 21, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that Kiev was asking the United States for help in acquiring electronic warfare equipment to counter Russia. This issue was discussed during his meeting with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.

On the same day, it became known that the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee unanimously supported the bill “On Partnership with Ukraine in the Security Sphere”, which provides for military assistance to Ukraine up to $ 300 million.

On April 14, Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin announced that the United States will continue to provide assistance to Ukraine so that it is capable of self-defense. We are talking about the continuation of the supply of certain types of weapons and the sending of American military instructors to the country.
