Putin warns Biden of ‘complete breakdown’ of US-Russia ties over Ukraine

While the tone of the call was constructive, according to the Kremlin ally, Mr Putin reiterated his claims that Russia felt threatened by NATO encroachment. He added that Russia would “conduct itself as the United States would behave if the United States had offensive weapons.”

Like the Trump administration before it, the Biden administration has provided hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the Ukrainian military, characterized as purely defensive weapons, including firing anti-tank missiles to repel a dangerous Russian offensive. . Russia has called those offensive weapons that threaten its own forces.

Mr Ushakov said that “for now, it is unclear” whether the two sides were moving towards a deal, but added that Russia does not have a definite time frame for the talks.

A US official, briefing reporters on condition of anonymity, said the call “sets the tone and duration for diplomatic engagements” to come in January. But he refused to “enter into the territory of starting talks in public”, saying that “whatever the Russian side has decided is the best strategy and tactics in terms of its public announcements, we are really I believe based on previous examples that it is most constructive to have these conversations in private.”

Mr Biden and Mr Putin had radically different motives for going into the call. By assembling troops at the border and then publishing two draft treaties that echoed Cold War-era demands, Mr. Putin created an international crisis and tried to turn the clock back 30 years, just before the collapse of the Soviet Union. Desire made clear. Federation. They demanded that Ukraine cease its embrace of the West, that the United States and its allies cease all military activity in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and that NATO halt its expansion to the east and military deployments near Russia’s borders. withdrawn.

In Washington and European Capitals, most of the proposed treaty language was immediately rejected as an attempt to redraw Europe’s post-Cold War borders and, with the threat of invasion, bring Ukraine back into Moscow’s orbit. was forced to.

Yet despite Russia’s damaged economy and dwindling capabilities, Mr. Putin is working with a strong hand: he demonstrated his willingness to take over the Russian-speaking region, with the annexation of Crimea in 2014. And he is confident that the United States and its NATO allies will not commit the military to the act of pushing back.
