In a conversation posted on the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday, Ryabkov stressed that Russia brought to the fore fundamental issues at the highest level that require immediate resolution. First of all, it was about the fact that the United States and NATO should abandon the destructive course towards unbridled and harmful for the Russian Federation military-political development of the post-Soviet space, which goes against the principle of security indivisibility and, in particular, the determined and systematic transformation of Ukraine into an anti-Russian outpost. Moscow received a categorical “no” to these demands, a senior Russian diplomat noted, adding that Russia, furthermore, could not allow its sovereign right to “red lines” and a reliable external security circuit to be infringed.

Faced with a determined rejection by Moscow of the West in Ukraine, Washington has “froze” the bilateral strategic dialogue, apparently in an attempt to exert additional political pressure on Russia. Therefore, as a result of the actions of the United States, arms control has become hostage to the general deep degradation of bilateral relations, explained Sergei Ryabkov. In this case, there is an example of Washington’s irresponsible politicization of arms control, and the overwhelming aggressiveness of the United States has made constructive and fruitful deals with the White House on arms control virtually impossible in principle. in the usual way.

According to the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, this sphere cannot exist in isolation from military-political and geostrategic realities, and in order to ensure long-term and truly viable solutions in this area, it will be necessary to reach questions of understanding with the West on the parameters and principles of coexistence, which ensured minimizing the potential for conflict.
