Russian-US foreign ministers hold emergency meeting amid rising tensions over Ukraine

 

 

 

Global New News Desk –
The US and Russian foreign ministers have met amid fears that Russian troops could enter Ukraine at any time.

 

The meeting between US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was held in Geneva on Friday.

 

 

Mr. “This is a crucial moment, but the United States is still committed to peace,” Blinken said in his opening remarks.

 

 

Russia and the United States “do not expect the differences between us to be resolved here,” he said.

 

 

 

However he acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat Trump’s government. He hopes that may be possible.

 

 

 

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Russia did not expect any major progress in the talks.

 

 

At the end of the meeting, they both agreed to continue the discussion.
Why this excitement

 

 

 

Russia has a million troops on its border with Ukraine. However, Russia has denied any involvement in the attack.

 

 

 

At the meeting, Mr. Blinken warns that if Russia does something like this, it will take “united, swift and big action.”

 

 

 

At a press conference after the meeting. Lavrov accused the Western defense alliance, Neto, of working against Russia.

 

 

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin called on Russia to ensure that Ukraine did not join the NATO alliance.

 

 

 

 

He wants to see an end to the supply of weapons to Eastern Europe, including the military operations of the Western defense alliance. Moscow considers this Eastern Europe to be the sphere of influence next to its own home.

 

 

 

Russia has been embroiled in a bitter conflict with Ukraine since its annexation of Crimea in 2014.

 

 

 

Ukraine’s military is battling Russian-backed rebels in its own country.

 

 

So far 14,000 people have killed in the conflict.
This is the second meeting between the top two diplomats from the United States and Russia in Geneva.

 

 

 

Earlier, the US Secretary of State. Blinken sought to gain the support of his allies in order to impose sanctions on Moscow.

 

 

 

He spoke to British, French and German officials in Berlin on Thursday.

 

 

 

Foreign Office officials said Mr. Blinken will give the Russian foreign minister a diplomatic chance to ease tensions.

 

 

 

 

Just yesterday, US President Joe Biden said he thought Russia would invade Ukraine, but indicated that if the Russian operation was small, the response from the United States and its allies would be mild. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, however,  outraged by Biden’s remarks.
