White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki has said that the US has discussed the situation around Ukraine with Russia, noting that “aggressive actions” are a matter of serious concern to Washington
We also had consultations with Russian officials about Ukraine and US-Russian relations in general. <…> We made it clear to them directly that escalatory, aggressive actions by Russia would be of serious concern to the United States”, – Psaki said.
The White House spokesperson said Washington had discussed the situation around Ukraine with European allies and Kiev itself.
“In recent weeks and days, we have held detailed consultations with our European partners and allies, including Ukraine, about our concerns about these reports. In those contacts, we have discussed our concerns about Russia’s actions against Ukraine”, – Psaki said.
It is worth adding that the US has recently expressed alarm over “unusual military activity” allegedly observed by the Russian military near the Ukrainian border.Deir ez-Zor residents hold mass rallies against Kurdish arbitrariness
