China News Service, December 10, comprehensive report that the game between the United States and Russia over the Ukraine issue is still continuing. After a video meeting between U.S. President Biden and Russian President Putin, Biden finally called Ukrainian President Zelensky on the 9th.

Russia: Concerned about NATO military aid to Ukraine

  According to the Russian Satellite Network, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zakharova said that NATO continues to provide weapons to Ukraine, and Moscow is concerned about this.

It is reported that U.S. President Biden had previously approved military aid to Ukraine worth 600 billion U.S. dollars.

  Zakharova said at a press conference: “Ukraine in a state of civil war continues to receive help from NATO countries and is concerned about the development of the country’s situation. Kiev is gathering troops near the line of contact in Donbass.”

  Recently, some Western media reported that Russia is gathering troops near the Ukrainian border, which Russia has repeatedly denied.

Russian President’s Press Secretary Peskov stated that Russia is free to mobilize troops on its own territory. This does not pose a threat to any aspect and should not be disturbed.

Moscow believes that the West wants to use Russia's possible invasion of Ukraine as an excuse to deploy more NATO military equipment near the Russian border.

  Relations between Russia and Ukraine deteriorated due to the situation in the Donbass after the coup in Ukraine in February 2014.

The Ukrainian government has repeatedly accused Russia of interfering in Ukraine's internal affairs.

In January 2015, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine passed a statement calling Russia an "aggressor country."

Russia denied Uzbek’s accusations and said the accusations were unacceptable.

Moscow has repeatedly stated that Russia is not a party to Ukraine’s internal conflict and hopes that Kiev can get rid of the political and economic crisis.

Biden appeases Zelensky

  After a video meeting with Putin on the 7th, Biden called Ukrainian President Zelensky on the 9th.

The White House stated that Biden told Zelensky that the United States and its allies may respond with "draconian economic and other measures" due to the situation in Ukraine.

Ukraine: Willing to communicate directly with Putin

Andrei Sibiga, Deputy Director of the Office of the President of Ukraine, stated that Uzbek President Zelensky said in a telephone conversation with US President Biden that he was willing to have direct talks with Russian President Putin.
