Peskov: The Patriot mission in Ukraine does not contribute to de-escalation of the Moscow-Kiev crisis


Peskov said there were no signs of readiness for peace talks with Ukraine

The US shipment of advanced Patriot missile systems to Ukraine’s armed forces, announced during Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to Washington on Wednesday, will not help resolve the crisis between Moscow and Kiev and will not prevent Russia from to achieve its goals, the Kremlin announced today.

Speaking to reporters, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said there were no signs of readiness for peace talks during Zelensky’s visit and that this proves the US is waging a proxy war with Russia “down to the last Ukrainian.”

Yesterday the president of the USA Joe Biden with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky had a private meeting at the White House, while a little later they gave a joint press conference, during which the new aid package to Ukraine was officially announced.

During the press conference, the US president emphasized that the US and Ukraine have been in close contact since the war began, but underlined that it was “especially good to meet up close and look each other in the eye”.

At the same time, he announced $1.85 billion in military aid to Ukraine, including the Patriot system.
