    President of the United States Donald Trump during a conversation with the leader of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev suggested moving from Minsk negotiations on the resolution of the conflict in Donbass.


    As Nazarbayev said after the UN Security Council meeting, the American president advocated the transfer of negotiations to the capital of another state. According to him, the presidents agreed that Minsk-1 was at a deadlock due to lack of mutual understanding of the parties, after which Trump proposed to hold negotiations in a different place.

    The US federal government had to stop working on Saturday midnight (January 20) local time due to lack of funding, RIA reports. 


    This happened after Republicans and Democrats in the Senate could not agree on the adoption of a new bill that would allow transferring funds to the activities of state institutions.


    The United States is one of the few countries where government funding has deadlines that need to be extended when they expire. The previous bill, which provided for the allocation of funds for the state structures' activities, ceased to operate after the end of Friday.
