U.S. Special Envoy Blames Russia For 'Hot War' In Ukraine

The U.S. special envoy to Ukraine has described the violence in the eastern part of the country as a "hot war." Kurt Volker said Russian aggression was to blame for the ongoing fighting, which he said should not be regarded as a "frozen conflict." Volker made the comments during a visit to the Ukrainian government-controlled town of Kramatorsk on July 23, near territory held by Russia-backed separatists. (Reuters)
