According to him, Nuland “has not sent any new signals” about the willingness of the United States to negotiate, as presented by some media. “This is Washington’s well-known position and its long-formulated conditions, which the Under Secretary of State repeated once more. Side view”, wrote the politician on his Telegram channel.
Remember that Nuland said earlier that he would support easing sanctions against Russia “in the context of Russia’s decision to seriously negotiate and withdraw its forces from Ukraine and return the territory.” According to her, the Secretary of State of the United States, Anthony Blinken, is of the same opinion.
At the same time, the Russian side does not yet see the readiness of the states themselves for dialogue. As Konstantin Gavrilov, head of the Russian delegation at the Vienna talks on military security and arms control issues, pointed out yesterday, hardly anyone will seriously believe these calls. “Saying, on the one hand, ‘we are ready for negotiations’ and announcing the shipment of Abrams tanks to the Ukraine, to encourage the Germans to do this. I think those things are unlikely to work with our country,” he said.
