Walker focused on the full responsibility of the Russian Federation for the escalation of the conflict. “Russia pretends it is not there. She insists that in the framework of the “channel process” conducted business with representatives of Lugansk and Donetsk, which Russia is created. Although they are irregular and illegal partners.
