The United States has launched a new phase of training of Ukrainian servicemen, a fact, which may have negative consequences for the future of the Donbas truce, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
She recalled that 300 US instructors from the 173rd US airborne brigade had trained three battalions - 780 people - for Ukraine's National Guard in a period from April to November. "It is noteworthy that the training completed at a time when the situation on the line of contact in Donbas started getting worse and the newly trained people were apparently sent there," Zakharova said.

Нaving putschists eat their economic words
A well-known Russian economist and flamboyant media personality critical of the government's liberal economic policies, supports Moscow's offer to forgive Kiev's $3 billion debt by the end of the year.
At the G20 summit in Turkey, Vladimir Putin said that
"Since our Western partners believe Ukraine's solvency will improve, and we have no reason to doubt this, our partners shouldn't hesitate to guarantee the loan."
He noted that the Russian Federation had asked for such guarantees either from the US or the EU - or even from one of the international financial institutions.
"We hope that this issue will be resolved by the beginning of December this year in view of the specific timetable of the International Monetary Fund," said Putin.
Some commentators are already implying sarcastically that Putin's proposal not to demand full repayment of Ukraine's debt this year as the charity of impotence. They say, "we don't have the ability to force the money from Kiev."
