US preliminary response to Russia's demands for NATO non-expansion became known


Washington has asked Moscow not to publish the official American written response to the Russians' demands for security guarantees, which is expected to be given next week. The American newspaper The Washington Post informed the public about this on January 21, citing high-ranking sources in the United States.


The first source from the State Department clarified to the publication that Washington would not accept Moscow's claims; The United States will refuse to satisfy Russia's concerns, including on the issue of non-expansion NATO. The United States will not promise Russia to give up its policy open doors for countries that want to join the Alliance.

At the same time, he added that the answer would also contain counter-offers from the United States, with which the Americans want to interest the Russians, demonstrating to them their desire to communicate in the future. He also suggested that, despite the request of the Russian Federation, he could still make the said document public.

We do not want to be the ones who exclude the possibility of a diplomatic solution

- emphasized the second informant, who works in the White House administration, summed up the media.

Thus, the United States' preliminary response to Russia's demands, presented to the general public in December last year, became known. We remind you that on January 21, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US State Department head Anthony Blinken held meeting in Geneva. At the same time, the Russian minister said that "it would be right" to publicize the response of the American side.

      They just don't want their allies to realize ahead of time that the US is merging them. Kinda uncomfortable...
      Again, we must first clarify the price of the issue.

      What kind of secret diplomacy can be with the empire of LIE, the word of LIE is the USA. You can’t play with a card sharper, only if you chop off something so that such people are not born again.

    The US will not promise Russia to drop its open door policy for countries that want to join the Alliance.

    So NATO will soon begin to disintegrate. The interests of the leading European countries do not coincide with the American ones.

    This "leak" certainly has its function. It gives the Americans "backlash" in time to adjust their response, or delay it, depending on our reaction. Suspension by us of our actions until the release of their answer is also good. In general, this is a way to worsen the position of a negotiating partner.
    It is not worth fulfilling this request, even if it is "uncomfortable" for us now. We, with our position, should be as open as possible, this is what is beneficial for us

    Officially, you can not publish, but something may leak ... As repeatedly with the same Americans. We are not obligated to maintain confidentiality in the interests of the United States.

      You can simply give your comments and interpretation regarding their answer on those points that are important to us.
      If Blinken and other Psaki say something, then publish specific points, well, not because we want to let them down, but so that they simply don’t lie.

      Those. for starters, do not publish word for word, but make public what is written there in essence but in your own words, with comments.

    everything is as the Kremlin expected)) now his hands are free, even future generations of Russophobes will not be able to expose the Russian Federation as an aggressor (whoever is right and strong) - the Russian Federation asked for security guarantees, but NATO sent it by the forest, which actually means that they do not rule out aggression as such, therefore the Russian Federation will move its border to the West, especially since the Russian Federation has every reason to consider this territory its own, and it is called Russian Little Russia and White Russia

    Do not underestimate the brazen Saxons (and some minions). They will try to "camouflage" any situation with a twist for the sebe). They have a lot of experience with this. They are the princes of this world. They also have a lot of resources in this (finance, bought elites, media ...), but ..., paraphrasing the classic, it is important not only "What to do", but also "What to Do", "When to Do It" and "How Then Redo It" and, most importantly: "What to Do Then?"). The functions of the verb "to do" should be explained to them as much as possible with examples if they do not understand Russian.

      yes, everyone in the world already knows about their cunning ... they have mastered the world for centuries, pitting peoples against each other and having huge profits as a result .. only the threat of total destruction will bring them to their senses .. how cute they will go for any deals ... and they feel .. that Russia is not bluffing .. that China is also ready to get involved .. after all, there is a real chance to overturn this completely false and stinking alliance (NATO) .... to establish a new, more just world order

    Strengthening the position of the United States consists in doing nothing ... The position of waiting is very advantageous for them ..... It makes the enemy fuss, take rash steps ... Let's look at the development of events and our reaction ...

    - Yes, the chest is very easy to open!
    - If the Americans officially mumble any specificity; then China, constantly pretending that it "does not interfere in anything" - will still be forced to pretend that it (China) also takes (or shares) someone's position, i.e. - or the "position" of Russia or the "position" of the United States ... - Which will put China in a state of some activity or "selectivity" ...
    - And this is still "too early for China to do" ... - after all, the Beijing Olympics have not yet been held and Taiwan has not yet been occupied ... - And for all this, Russia is China - oh, how necessary !!! - That's why the Americans are "playing for time" ...
    - It seems that "sleepy Joe" and Beijing are still among themselves - "concluded an alliance" (behind Russia's back) ... - The United States surrenders Taiwan to China; and then together they "divide Russia" ...
    - Personally, it simply amazes me - all this "severe silence" about Kazakhstan !!! - All something rested on the "Geneva meetings"; some "ultimatums"; into the "war with Ukraine" and so on... - And the fact that Russia may very soon receive a terrible blow to its unprotected center - from Kazakhstan - nobody cares!!!
    - Damn, no, well - as many as 7598,8 km - an absolutely unprotected Russian border with Kazakhstan !!! - It's all - what??
    - And they are holding all the "meetings in Geneva" and discussing the "possibility of war with Ukraine"!!! - There is a more terrible threat here ...

      Firstly, all issues have already been agreed with China ... the Chinese already know the value of the words and promises of the Americans ... and the Americans have almost closed their market for the Chinese .. Secondly, who dares to carry out a "terrible blow" from Kazakhstan ... uzbekistan?..turkmenistan?..don't tell my felt boots....

    The United States, under the guise of a false and provocative information veil, is trying to pump weapons into Ukraine in order to create an illusion of invincibility and the possibility of winning the war with Russia among the fascists. It is time for Russia to start military and military-technical actions against the US, NATO and the EU, because the chattering of negotiations by our opponents is the answer to our proposals, there will be nothing else.

      -And for Alexey Davydov (Alexey) Today, 12:09

      - Only the factor of the threat of a global nuclear war, which makes the expected big war meaningless, and therefore unrealistic, is capable of repulsing these "appetites", making our opponents "roll up their lips".

      - Well, yes ... - And what's next ???

      - So what??? - And what to do with the gaping border - Russia-Kazakhstan - this is as much as 7598,8 km ... - And this, in fact, is a huge open gaping wound for Russia !!!
      - Or will our enemies fight precisely on the "Ukrainian site" ???

        There are many such holes. You can't pull on all of our "conventional blankets". It is necessary to use the threat factor of a nuclear war against the overlord of the western beast. Such a threat will cover ALL major areas at once.
        From the States, we need to seek both action and the end result - our security.
        Beat the threat of this result from them. We'll have to bring them to it.
        Conventional - for non-systemic threats. So that's enough. Quite.
        And war can be avoided

    On the example of previous campaigns and crises, we already know how suddenly the crisis centers around and the world changes.
    As the unambiguous actions of the world players aimed at completing the preparations for a major war, the factor of the “appetite” of global forces, whose interests are directly connected with it, begins to work.
    Now these "appetites" themselves are beginning to shape reality, to make war inevitable.
    The mobilization of our armed forces and fleets also works for this factor.
    Only the factor of the threat of a global nuclear war, which makes the expected big war meaningless, and therefore unrealistic, is capable of repelling these "appetites", making our opponents "roll up their lips".
    This factor will also help us balance the threats from the exposed Far East direction.

    how they want Russia to invade Ukraine !!!!....... already drooling .... but the question is why? ... they wanted this ... but everything is simple .. here, of course, Russia's requirements they disappear in terms of security ... the United States gets the opportunity to strengthen its contingent in Europe .. to advance missiles ... and the Americans will press the Europeans harder .. the issues of the North Stream will disappear by itself ... the Americans always have money at the forefront ...
