“Probably Kurt Walker was not particularly cynical in his mission, but rather - he sincerely believed that he was defending. But the result, as you know, is zero. I think, for the simple reason that the subject of his faith has always remained the United States, not Ukraine, ”the senator wrote on Facebook.

According to him, in the interests of Washington, and not Kiev, it was "stupid all this time to insist on Moscow’s exclusive responsibility for what is happening in the Ukrainian southeast," while "not seeing real people behind their convictions" living in the Donbass.

Kosachev said that Walker “in this sense rendered a disservice to Kiev”, as he postponed and delayed the implementation of the Minsk agreements.

Earlier, CNN, citing three sources familiar with the situation, said that Walker had resigned.
