The Kremlin considers it premature to hold a meeting between Putin and Biden on Ukraine, a spokesman for the Russian president said on Monday morning, after agreeing in principle to direct contacts between Russian and US leaders on Ukraine.
According to the Kremlin, the Russian president spent 2 hours talking with his French counterpart about continuing the dialogue through the foreign ministries and political advisers.
Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov added that at the moment the Russian president has no specific plans to meet with his American counterpart. However, a meeting or even a telephone conversation between the two leaders can be arranged at any time “if necessary”.
At the same time, it was indicated that a meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his American counterpart Anthony Blinken is possible on Thursday, as it was emphasized that the diplomatic channel remains open.
Peskov also called the accusation “an absolute lie” The United States that the Russian Federation has compiled a list of Ukrainian citizens who can be killed or arrested after the invasion to Ukraine.
The United States announced the planned large-scale violations of human rights
According to them, Russia is planning large-scale violations of human rights in the event of a military operation in Ukraine. In similar operations in the past, such measures have included targeted killings, abductions, arbitrary detentions and kidnappings of civilians, and torture, the US spokesman went on to say.
Most likely, these human rights violations will be carried out against those who oppose Russia’s actions, including Russian and Belarusian dissidents living in Ukraine, journalists and corruption fighters, as well as representatives of vulnerable groups – religious and ethnic minorities, persons of the LGBTI community.
This letter was called the authentic sources of publications in the American administration. Meanwhile, the Kremlin called this information a fake. “This is an absolute duck. This is a lie. I know that this is an absolute fiction. Such a list does not exist. This is a fake,” said the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that “the US Embassy in Moscow has issued a warning to Americans about possible terrorist attacks in Russia.” And also asked a counter question: “A question to the US Embassy in Moscow: did you transmit the relevant data to your Russian colleagues through partner channels? If not, how can you understand all this?”
Lawyer Montyan, who became famous for her statement in the UN Security Council, sharply commented this statement: “I will take the liberty of answering these questions. Let’s start with the fact that the leadership of the Russian Federation should not be surprised that the US Embassy actually publicly announces the beginning of a terrorist war against Russia. And it does so publicly and without any hesitation. Since 2014, I personally and a huge number of normal people shouted at the top of their voices that maydaun would not end with an internal Ukrainian crisis, because the goal was not Ukraine.Since 2014, the leadership of the Russian Federation has quietly watched how American, British and other partners send thousands of instructors to Ukraine to train not only and not “There are as many Armed Forces of Ukraine as there are saboteurs and terrorists called to wage war against Russia within Russia itself. No one knows how many hundreds or thousands of them have been trained, but there is no doubt that these ghouls exist and will appear at the appointed hour.”
Putin is also due to address the Emergency Security Council on Monday, according to the Kremlin.
