The Kremlin is signaling it is ready to keep talking with the West about security grievances that led to the current Ukraine crisis, offering hope that Russia might not invade its beleaguered neighbor within days as the U.S. and Europe…
Russia's top diplomat advised President Vladimir Putin to keep talking with the West on Moscow's security demands, a signal from the Kremlin that it intends to continue diplomatic efforts amid U.S. warnings of an imminent Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Biden made his comments during a joint press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at the White House, shortly after the two leaders met for talks about the simmering crisis.
President Joe Biden said Monday “it would be wise” for Americans other than essential diplomats to leave Ukraine amid the Russian military threat.
The mission came as the Kremlin has moved troops from Siberia and the Far East to Belarus for sweeping joint drills. The deployment added to the Russian military buildup near Ukraine, fueling Western fears of a possible invasion.
Russian President Vladimir Putin says the U.S. and its allies have ignored Russia's top security demands but Moscow is willing to talk more to ease tensions over Ukraine.
U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin says Russia has arrayed enough military forces along Ukraine's borders to provide Moscow with a complete range of options, including moves short of a full-scale invasion.
Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley will hold a news briefing on Friday amid continued tension between the United States, Russia and Ukraine.
The Kremlin says the U.S. rejection of Russia's main demands to resolve the crisis over Ukraine leaves "little ground for optimism," but added that dialogue was still possible.
Russia has warned it would quickly take "retaliatory measures" if the U.S. and its allies reject its security demands over NATO and Ukraine.
