“The issue of Ukraine’s non-entry into NATO can be resolved in a completely different way.”


The meeting was working. In fact, the course of what happened today was determined at the meeting between Biden and Putin. Well, perhaps such limited optimism. Purely formal, because on those sites – Russia-NATO and the OSCE – it is basically impossible to solve anything. Why fantasize that it is impossible even to predict? And I think that some fundamental decisions have already been made. – This can be guessed by the decisions that have not yet been made. But the good news is that none of those who could arrange some kind of nasty in order to disrupt these negotiations did nothing. The expert assessed the progress of the Russian-American negotiations on security
“We got the impression that the American side took the Russian proposals very seriously and carried out their in-depth study,” said Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov following the Russian-American consultations on security guarantees held in Geneva on Monday. We came, perhaps, to some technical solutions – what to do next, how to continue these negotiations. Otherwise, Biden simply would not have sat down at the negotiating table. But this was understandable. So we parted now, in general, with zero information load. This is done with one call from the White House to Zelensky. If some things had not been agreed – I am not talking about fundamental things – then today's meeting, in principle, would not have taken place. At least – on certain issues. Everything that was said was already clear before this meeting. However, this is perhaps the only uniquely positive characterization of the ended meeting that he gave out. Two more meetings will now take place (on January 12, a meeting of the Russia-NATO Council will take place in Brussels, and on January 13 – negotiations between representatives of Russia and the OSCE in Vienna – MK). – Oh sure. But she did not comment on the rest of the Russian demands. Its participants, as was expected, exchanged information. We asked the MGIMO professor, retired SVR colonel Andrei Bezrukov to evaluate its results. Otherwise, people simply would not have met in Geneva. Let me fantasize: if it is impossible to adopt some binding documents on the non-entry of Ukraine into NATO at the NATO level, then it is possible, for example, to adopt amendments to the country's constitution – that they themselves will never ask for it.

– I think there is no particular reason for either pessimism or optimism. But the American side is fully aware of the seriousness of the situation. Then they will go and report on the results of these negotiations. As for Ukraine, this issue can be resolved in a completely different way. This means that we can move forward on these issues. Источник www.mk.ru The same Sherman (US Deputy Secretary of State – “MK”) stated that the Americans could not give guarantees that Ukraine would not join NATO. – I don't even want to think about it. And then decisions will be made on what to do with it.
