Former US ambassador to Ukraine rules out large scale military operations in Nagorno-Karabakh in 2018
Besides, Herbst criticized Russia for selling weapons both to Azerbaijan and Armenia: "It is completely unacceptable. It allows Kremlin to preserve its influence on two countries".
"I do not accept any diplomatic progress on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement in 2018. Maintaining status-quo does not offer any novelty", he said.
