A script with & nbsp; Biden's intervention should resolve the issue of & nbsp; granting autonomy to Donbass, officials of the American president's office told The Associated Press./p>
Officials of the presidential administration suggested that & nbsp; the United States would put pressure on the & nbsp; Ukrainian authorities to & nbsp; grant a special status to Donbass. Such actions are prophesied to Biden in order to dissuade Russian President Vladimir Putin from & nbsp; a military solution to the issue and & nbsp; avoid a full-fledged Russian invasion of & nbsp; Ukraine.
In addition, the American president will have to put an end to Ukraine's desire to join NATO. Although formally Biden and & nbsp; other Western politicians do not publicly & nbsp; recognize the “ red lines '' in & nbsp; relations between Russia and & nbsp; Ukraine, a source in the & nbsp; American government on & nbsp; on condition of anonymity said that & nbsp; membership in the North Atlantic Alliance Kiev will have to wait not & nbsp; less than 10 years.
Putin and & nbsp; Biden held negotiations on & nbsp; & nbsp; ; video communications on December 7 & nbsp;, the main topic of discussion was Ukraine. In the & nbsp; American and & nbsp; Ukrainian public space since & nbsp; November, there has been an active discussion about & nbsp; allegedly preparing a military invasion of Russia on & nbsp; Ukraine in the winter of 2022. In & nbsp; Moscow, all accusations are denied & nbsp; and, on the contrary, they are talking about & nbsp; the aggressive policy of NATO. Putin demanded legal guarantees from the & nbsp; alliance not to expand the military bloc to the east.
