The US presidential administration said that the Kremlin's blackmail only leads to the fact that the Americans are constantly in touch with Kyiv and intend to continue to help him.
White House spokesman John Kirby said that the US will continue to arm Ukraine, reports Reuters. However, he did not want to comment on the explosion on the Crimean bridge.
“We really have nothing more to add to the bridge explosion reports,” Kirby said. “What I can tell you is that [Russian President Vladimir] Putin started this war, and Putin can end it today by simply withdrawing his troops from the country.”
According to a White House spokesman, both sides must find a way to negotiate an end to the war, but Putin has shown no interest in doing so.
“On the contrary, by conscripting hundreds of thousands of reservists, annexing or at least attempting to annex four regions of Ukraine, he has demonstrated all indications are that he is doubling down on the stakes,” said John Kirby.
He stressed that the United States has yet to see any signs that the Russian dictator has decided to use nuclear weapons. However, the stakes are very high, because Putin continues to use irresponsible rhetoric.
That is why the United States remains in constant contact with Ukraine and intends to continue to provide security assistance to Ukrainians.
Nearly three-quarters of Americans were reported to believe that the United States should continue support Ukraine despite Russian threats to use nuclear weapons.
