U.S. takes into account Ukraine’s concerns when responding to Moscow’s demands – State Dep’t

The United States has formulated a written response to Russia's "proposals" for security guarantees in Europe, taking into account the positions of all allies and partners in Europe, including Ukraine.

U.S. State Department Spokesman Ned Price spoke about this at a briefing on Tuesday, Ukrinform's own correspondent reports.

"We have been consulting extensively with our allies and our partners, and of course when it comes to the latter category, that includes Ukraine," Price said.

"We have not only informed them and given them a preview of what will be in this report. I believe we have also solicited their feedback and incorporated that feedback into our report," said the State Department spokesman.

Thus, according to Ned Price, the written response to Russia’s concerns will bring “no surprise” to either NATO, EU, or Ukraine.

He also said that the document is yet to be sent to Moscow, assuring that as soon as this happens, the U.S. Department of State would officially report it.

As Ukrinform wrote earlier, after a meeting with the Russian Foreign Minister in Geneva on January 21, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the American side would provide a written response to Moscow's so-called "proposals" for security guarantees in Europe.
