“As the president said, no negotiations about Ukraine without Ukraine.

In the past few months, we have been doing everything to ensure that with our support, Ukraine is in the strongest position, so that when the opportunity for negotiations arises, they can do it, ”she said.

Washington's position has not changed, the United States is going to continue to support Kyiv, the White House press secretary emphasized.

“We will continue to help Ukraine fight for its democracy,” Jean-Pierre said.

As John Kirby, coordinator for strategic communications at the White House National Security Council, said earlier, the time has not yet come for negotiations between Russia and Ukraine.

The Kremlin noted that Western countries are betting on the continuation of the conflict in Ukraine, not allowing Kyiv to think about peace.
