U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker has compared Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"I've only met President Putin when I was working in the White House for President Bush. That's a long time ago. I find that President Putin is all about power, he wants to have power inside Russia, and he's created a very strong authoritarian regime and he wants to exercise power and influence outside of Russia… Poroshenko seems to want to do more for his country. Now everybody has the wrong point of view about politics. You may like some of the policies, you may not, but I think President Poroshenko is indeed motivated by what he can do for his country," Volker said in an interview with Gordon TV show on 112.Ukraine TV channel.
As UNIAN reported earlier, U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker said the USA and the rest of Europe shall not lose focus on the situation in Donbas.
