US responds to security demands on Ukraine Russia sees opportunity for negotiations
Russian officials said they told American diplomats that Russia had no plans to invade Ukraine during a series of talks that lasted nearly eight hours.

International Military - Russia said on Thursday it was clear the United States wasn't willing to address its main security enterprises, but kept the door open for farther dialog in their standoff over Ukraine. 


Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said Moscow, which has erected up its forces near Ukraine, would not rush to draw conclusions after Washington responded on Wednesday to Russian proffers for a redrawing ofpost-Cold War security arrangements in Europe. 

Describing pressures in Europe as evocative of the Cold War, Peskov said Moscow demanded time to review theU.S. written response butU.S. and NATO statements that Russia’s main demands were inferior didn't leave important room for sanguinity. 


“ Grounded on what our associates said history, it’s absolutely clear that on the main orders outlined in those draft documents … we can not say that our studies have been taken into account or that a amenability has been shown to take our enterprises into account,” he said. “ But we wo n’t rush with our assessments.” 

READ Further Ukraine-Russia extremity is ongoing. How did we get then, and what’s passing?  The nuanced Kremlin response made clear that Russia wasn't rejecting theU.S. and NATO responses out of hand or closing the door to tactfulness. 

The Russian foreign ministry said the stylish way to reduce pressures was for NATO to withdraw forces from eastern Europe, but also sought to quash fears of a brewing irruption. “ We've formerly constantly stated that our country doesn't intend to attack anyone. We consider indeed the study of a war between our people to be inferior,” said Alexei Zaitsev, a ministry spokesperson. 

Russian and Ukrainian bone bonds, which have been pounded by the extremity, rose after Peskov spoke. Russia’s bone- nominated RTS share indicator rose 4, and the rouble gained over 1 against the bone, pulling down from a nearly 15-month low. Though it denies planning to foray Ukraine, Russia says it wants to apply “ red lines” to cover its own security. 

It presented demands in December that NATO halt any farther blowup, bar Ukraine from ever joining and pull back forces and artillery from eastern European countries that joined the alliance after the Cold War ended. 

 The writtenU.S. and NATO responses weren't made public, but both had formerly rejected those demands while expressing amenability to engage on other issues similar as arms control, confidence- structure measures and limits on the size and compass of military exercises. 

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Washington remained married to upholding NATO’s “ open- door” policy and NATO said it would not compromise its core principles. 


Western countries have advised of profitable warrants on Russia if it invades Ukraine, erecting on measures assessed since 2014, when Moscow adjoined Crimea and Russian- backed secessionists began fighting government forces in eastern Ukraine. 

Ukrainian, Russian, German and French diplomats bandied the conflict in eastern Ukraine in Paris on Wednesday and agreed further addresses should be held in Berlin in two weeks. 

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy ate the meeting and “ its formative nature,” and Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said the agreement on further addresses meant Russia was likely to remain on a politic track for at least two weeks. 

He said Russia’s main strategy now was to destabilize Ukraine, including by using cyber attacks, and that “ a military operation is commodity they keep in the fund, it’s not commodity they put ahead of other options.”. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said there was stopgap of starting serious dialog with the United States, but only on secondary questions and not on abecedarian bones. 

“ The most important question is our clear position on the unacceptability of NATO’s further eastward expansion and the deployment of strike munitions that could hang Russian home,” Lavrov said in commentary published on his ministry’s website. He said Putin would decide Russia’s coming move. 


Putin, who has not spoken intimately on the extremity for weeks, has advised of an unidentified “ military-specialized response” – commodity defense judges say could relate to bullet deployments – if Russia’s demands are ignored.
