Russia five years ago started the war in the Donbass, and still trying to destabilize Ukraine by the conflict. The U.S. calls the Kremlin to stop immediately the violence in the East of the country, to do everything that the region was at peace, and to release the illegally captured Azov to the sailors.
Deputy chief of U.S. mission to the OSCE Gregory Makris noted that Russia artificially sharpens the conflict in the Donbas and violates the Minsk agreement, most of them in the territories controlled by Pro-Russian militants, reports “Voice of America”.
The United States reiterates its call on the Russian Federation, as the instigator of this conflict, force controlled force to stop the violence in the Donbass region. Instead of half measures and empty promises Russia should take measures to stop the conflict which it has provoked, and continues to fuel,
The United States once again calls on the Kremlin to immediately release the Ukrainian military vessels and 24 seamen who were illegally seized on November 25 in the Kerch Strait. The actions of Russian forces are unjustified, and outrageous.
“We call on Russia to immediately release all prisoners of conscience and to bring to justice those involved in human rights violations including disappearances, physical and psychological violence and killings,” he added.
Also, the United States will never recognize the illegal annexation of Crimea and fully support the territorial integrity of Ukraine, including territorial waters.
Why Putin wants to invade Ukraine?
Russian President Vladimir Putin will continue to fight for Ukraine, and to interfere in its internal Affairs. He wants to realize his Imperial vision to create a “great Russia”. The ex-President of Poland Alexander Kwasniewski is convinced that the head of the Kremlin’s two strategic goals – to become a major player on the world stage that he has failed and make Russia a “collector of the former USSR countries”. At the same time, Putin understands that the Baltic States he will not get, so his appetite is more focused on neighboring Ukraine.
