The USA does not support holding a referendum on the occupied Donbass
The special representative of State department of the United States of America for Ukraine Curt Volcker said that the USA does not support holding a referendum on the Russian scenario on the occupied Donbass. he told

About it during the telephone briefing from Brussels.

In particular, asked it about whether the USA has answers to the Russian offers concerning holding a referendum on Donbass by determination of future status of the region.

"As for the idea about a referendum, this question was raised within the meeting in Helsinki, and we, the White House, and State department, published the statement at that time, noting that we reject the idea of a referendum", - Volcker said.
In this regard it noted that this referendum "has no legal grounds in the Ukrainian Constitution and legal grounds under the Minsk Agreement".

"We were quite accurate at that time that the unrealizable idea is holding a referendum only on a part of the Ukrainian territory where most of the population was moved because of the Russian intervention", - Volcker emphasized.
