US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker arrived in Ukraine on Tuesday, UNIAN agency reported citing an assistant to the press attache of the US Embassy Vadym Kovalyuk.

The plane of the American diplomat landed at Boryspil airport at about 13:00 on Tuesday, 23 January.

According to UNIAN, Volker is slated to meet President Petro Poroshenko later in the day. The US embassy noted that Volker's travel to Donbas planned for January 24 will most likely be postponed due to weather conditions in the east of Ukraine, where temperatures are expected to drop to -10 degrees Celsius, with strong wind and snowfall.

After the visit to Ukraine Volker will go to Dubai for talks with Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov. The meeting was planned for December but was cancelled.

The USA recently decided to provide Ukraine with lethal defensive weapons.
