US and Russia Begin Talks on Ukraine Security

Summary from the AllSides News Team

On Monday, the U.S. and Russia will begin high-stakes security talks in a effort to defuse tensions over a Russian military buildup of over 100,000 troops on its border with Ukraine.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is playing down expectations that Russian President Vladimir Putin will defuse the military threat, while U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan is reportedly being urged by Russian experts in America to send more arms to the Ukrainians. Meanwhile, Putin denies any plans to attack Ukraine, but is demanding that the U.S. and its European allies never allow Ukraine or other former Soviet bloc nations to become members of NATO.
