US Undersecretary of State: Russia will prove its desire to de-escalate by returning troops to barracks

She stated that the & nbsp; United States at & nbsp; talks on & nbsp; security guarantees made it clear that & nbsp; are ready to discuss the placement of missiles & nbsp; in & nbsp; Europe, but do not & nbsp; agree with & nbsp; restrictions on & nbsp; admission of new countries to & nbsp; NATO. She stressed that & nbsp; negotiations on security issues cannot be completed in & nbsp; short terms & nbsp; & mdash; for & nbsp; days or weeks.

“ Discussions were held today to & nbsp; better understand each other, and & nbsp; also priorities and & nbsp; each other's points of concern. This was not & nbsp; was what & nbsp; call negotiations & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; she noted at the & nbsp; briefing. According to & nbsp; she said, the United States offered Russia to meet to & nbsp; discuss the issue again in & nbsp; soon.

As Ms Sherman said, in the course of the negotiations, the American side indicated to the Russian that & nbsp; the consequences of the “ invasion '' on & nbsp; Ukraine will be much tougher than & nbsp; in & nbsp; 2014. The United States, according to & nbsp; she, defines de-escalation as the return of Russian troops to the & nbsp; barracks or notifying the United States about & nbsp; what exercises are being conducted by Russia and & nbsp; what is their purpose. She added that & nbsp; the United States does not yet & nbsp; know whether & nbsp; is & nbsp; Russia is ready for & nbsp; this kind of de-escalation.
