Volker: High-level US delegation to attend Zelensky inauguration

Kurt Volker, the US State Department’s Special Representative for Ukraine, told the BBC Russian service that “the highest level of representation” will attend the inauguration of Ukraine’s president-elect Volodymyr Zelensky.

“A high level delegation will come from the US to the inauguration of the Ukrainian president in Kyiv. We are waiting for the exact date to be specified, and then we will determine who will be in it. Around the same time, I will try to meet with him to discuss the conflict in the Donbas and the steps that can be taken to bring peace and quiet back to this land,” Volker said.

The American diplomat did not provide a list of possible names.

“It has not yet been announced, but it will be the highest level of representation, which will correspond to the status of the inauguration of the head of a state that is one of our friends,” he added.
