The US government wants to provide Ukraine with modern multiple rocket launchers to defend against a Russian invasion as part of a new security package. After the announcement, Moscow warned of a direct military confrontation between the United States and Russia.
Today, spokesman for the Presidential Office Dmitry Peskov said that the leadership in Moscow does not trust that Ukraine will not launch these missiles on Russian territory. We believe that the United States is deliberately pouring oil on the fire. It is clear that the United States is sticking to the line that it will fight Russia to the last of Ukraine.”
According to Peskov, Russia does not rule out a meeting between President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian Head of State Volodymyr Zelensky. However, every conversation of this kind should be prepared, Pesco said. Talks between the two sides on a peace deal have been stalled for a long time and have not resumed.
Peskov added that people in Russia-controlled Ukraine’s Kherson, Zaporizhia and Donbas regions should decide their own future. The Russian government has no doubts that it will make the “best decision”. Ukraine said Russia’s annexation of the regions would end peace talks between the two sides.
