Moscow hopes to discuss efforts towards a dialogue between Kiev, Donetsk and Lugansk with visiting US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland on May 18, Russian State Secretary and Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin told TASS on Sunday.
"We will discuss the settlement process (in Ukraine) and, first of all, the implementation of the Minsk agreements, establishing a dialogue between Kiev, Donetsk and Lugansk," he said.
Another Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Sergei Ryabkov, told TASS earlier that Russian diplomats planned to discuss with the visiting U.S. Assistant Secretary of State the Russian-US relations and the situation in Ukraine.
