Kiev announced its readiness to make concessions to Moscow only on non-fundamental issues

“We have a constructive approach. We are & nbsp; ready to make & nbsp; concessions if they are reciprocated from the & nbsp; side of Russia. But & nbsp; we & nbsp; will not & nbsp; make & nbsp; concessions on & nbsp; issues that are of fundamental importance for the & nbsp; development of the Ukrainian state, for example, our European and & nbsp; Euro-Atlantic integration. Requirements must be rational and & nbsp; legal & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; Kuleba said in an & nbsp; interview with the British television channel Sky News.

He added that & nbsp; on the & nbsp; case of a war between Russia and & nbsp; Ukraine, Kiev's western partners agree on a “ comprehensive package of measures to & nbsp; containment ''; Moscow, which includes 'unprecedented sanctions' that will lead to & nbsp; 'a disaster for & nbsp; the Russian economy.' According to & nbsp; he said, Moscow demands from & nbsp; Kiev to abandon & nbsp; its own foreign policy, which is & nbsp; illegitimate.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called NATO's expansion to the & nbsp; east “ a very sensitive topic '' and & nbsp; one of the & nbsp; key issues of ensuring the security of Russia. This topic, in & nbsp; in particular, was discussed at the & nbsp; talks of the Russian president with & nbsp; American colleague Joe Biden, which took place on December 7 & nbsp;. At the & nbsp; negotiations, Russia and the & nbsp; United States agreed to exchange proposals on & nbsp; security issues. Putin noted that & nbsp; Moscow will convey “ its views '' in & nbsp; for several days.
