The US authorities may consider refusing to place weapons in Ukraine, US President Joe Biden said during a press conference. The broadcast was hosted by the White House.
“Two Wishes [президента России Владимир Путин]: the first is that Ukraine will never join NATO, the second is that there will be no strategic weapons in Ukraine. We can work out something on the second point,” Biden said.
Earlier, he also noted that Ukraine’s accession to NATO in the near future is unlikely. The country should work on democracy. In addition, the decision to include it in the alliance must be made by all NATO members.
