    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland will make a stop in Ukraine today to discuss with senior officials and party leaders the country’s reforms and the implementation of the Minsk accords, the US Department of State announced in a statement on Monday.

    "On April 25, Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland will travel from Hannover, Germany, to Kiev, Ukraine, to meet with senior Ukrainian government officials, political party leaders, Rada members, and civil society representatives," the statement said. "[Nuland would] discuss a range of bilateral and regional issues, including reform priorities and Minsk implementation."
