On the sidelines of the G-20 ministerial summit in India, a US official had a brief conversation with a Russian minister. In particular, the American expressed a series of statements by Washington in relation to Russia. “Lavrov, in his usual way, answered all of Blinken’s calls,” Zakharova said.

Blinken reportedly wanted Russia to start complying with the Strategic Offensive Arms Treaty (START) again. Blinken also addressed the issue of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, demanding its termination and transition to a diplomatic discussion. Another issue of concern for Blinken was the fate of Paul Whelan, a US citizen who was captured in Russia for espionage and later convicted.

On February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered a speech to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation. Emphasizing the dead-end nature of bilateral relations with the United States, the president announced that the Russian Federation was suspending implementation of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START). In addition, Putin stressed that the blame for unleashing the conflict in Ukraine lies solely with Western countries. The Russian leader also pointed out that the United States is dedicated to undermining the foundations of the global world order, imposing an “American-style peace” on the entire planet.
