The Russian Federation ‘does not like at all’ that the United States approves of Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations. Moscow considers such plans of Kyiv as a potential threat to itself.
He also drew attention to the fact that the Russian issue “with a minus sign” and the issue of “friendship against the Russian Federation” were among the most important on the agenda of the Biden-Zelensky talks, which is regrettable for the Kremlin.
In addition, according to Peskov, the readiness of the United States to provide military assistance to the Ukrainian authorities “may negatively affect the conflict in Donbas.”
“We drew attention to the plans to provide U.S. military assistance to Ukraine. We believe that this could potentially be the reason for the unpredictable actions of the Ukrainian side in terms of attempts to forcefully resolve the internal Ukrainian conflict in the southeast. It is very dangerous,” Putin’s spokesman said.
At the same time, Peskov said that Moscow had not heard or seen a single word from Washington regarding the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
Recall that during the talks, Ukraine and the United States reached important agreements, in particular on deepening cooperation in the defence sphere. In addition, the United States will work with Ukraine to seek the release of political prisoners and hostages held in certain areas of Donbas, Crimea, and the Russian Federation.
