The spokesman for the US State Department announced his readiness for a dialogue with Russia on the issue of Ukraine. We are talking about alleged “provocations” on the eastern border.
The US State Department reported that they are ready and open to dialogue with Moscow on Ukraine.
The spokesman for the State Department also noted that the United States is urging Russia to “refrain from escalating actions,” RIA Novosti reports.
Earlier it was reported that the United States asked the Russian side for clarifications on the alleged “provocations” near the eastern border of Ukraine.
The State Department is worried about reports that movements of Russian troops have allegedly been seen in Crimea and on the Ukrainian border.
The Kremlin has repeatedly stated that the Russian Federation is not a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict. Moscow is interested in the early end of the crisis, but does not participate in the events in Ukraine. Russia only uses its influence to enforce peace agreements. Also, Moscow has repeatedly stated that Russia is moving its troops on its territory and at its own discretion.
