President Joe Biden has deferred making a solid commitment during talks with Russia to ease tension over Ukraine. He contests that proper discussions and plans will be set up before any agreements will be put in place.
Biden avoids Russia and Ukranie tension talks .
According to a senior to a senior official, “the Biden administration will hold off on making firm commitments during talks with Russia next week aimed at easing tensions over Ukraine, and plans discussions with allies before any agreements, the U.S. plans to seek areas of concurrence and is willing to explore reciprocal restrictions on strategic bombers and ground-based exercises. But the U.S. won’t negotiate scaling back troop deployments and military exercises in Eastern Europe”, the official said.
This came after the Secretary of State Antony Blinken, spoke about the Biden administration’s keen magniloquence against Russia, accusing Moscow of using military threats, disinformation, and targeted killings to build a sphere of influence crossing its boundaries.
Going further, there will be meetings between the NATO members and Russia in Brussels and also Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe later in the week.
The U.S official also noted that “the U.S. and Russia may be able to reach an understanding on the placement of an offensive missile system in Ukraine. Putin has raised concern over the prospect of such a system even though Biden has told Putin he isn’t planning on one”.
However, the Western officials have tried persuading Russian President Vladimir Putin to redraw the more than 100,000 troops he had instructed at Ukraine’s border in recent months. If an agreement can be reached, by the Russian President and the U.S all clauses will be amended.
Despite the feuding between the two countries, if the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, and the U.S President Joe Biden, can reach an agreement to put an end to all the pending clauses going on, there won’t be a need for troops at Ukraine’s border.
“Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It is the second-largest country by area in Europe after Russia, which it borders to the east and NorthEast. Ukraine also shares borders with Belarus to the north; Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary to the west; Romania and Moldova to the south; and has a coastline along the Sea of Azov and the Black Sea. It spans an area of 603,628 km2 (233,062 sq mi), with a population of 41.3 million, and is the eighth-most populous country in Europe. The nation’s capital and largest city is Kyiv.
The territory of modern Ukraine has been inhabited since 32,000 BC. During the Middle Ages, the area was a key center of East Slavic culture, with the powerful state of Kievan Rus’ forming the basis of Ukrainian identity. Following its fragmentation into several principalities in the 13th century and the devastation created by the Mongol invasion, the territorial unity collapsed and the area was contested, ruled, and divided by a variety of powers, including the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire, and Tsardom of Russia.
A Cossack Hetmanate emerged and prospered during the 17th and 18th centuries, but its territory was eventually split between Poland and the Russian Empire. In the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, a Ukrainian national movement for self-determination emerged, and the internationally recognized Ukrainian People’s Republic was declared on 23 June 1917. After World War II, the western part of Ukraine merged into the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, and the whole country became a part of the Soviet Union. Ukraine gained its independence in 1991, following the dissolution of the Soviet Union”. This section is culled from WIKIPEDIA
