The American delegation led by Brittany Stewart, the US military attaché in Kiev, visited the area of the military operation in Donbass. The headquarters of the operation of the joint forces of Ukraine announced this on Facebook.
US representatives visited Ukrainian units on the line of contact and got acquainted with “the current security policy and the operational situation at the front.”
As noted, Stewart said that the American government is deeply concerned about the situation around the borders of Ukraine, and strongly supports its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
We will remind, on the eve of Donbass was visited by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky. During the trip, he admitted that the conflict is now escalating, and also assured that the Armed Forces of Ukraine “will respond” to the shelling.
In turn, the head of the DPR Denis Pushilin said that Zelensky’s visit to the contact line does not create prospects for resolving the conflict in the region. In his opinion, the Ukrainian leader paid a visit to the front line not to tell the military about the importance of peace, but to inspire them.
About it whether a war could start in Donbass, military expert Viktor Murakhovsky told AiF.ru.
