President's Office comments on Putin's conversation with Biden
A telephone conversation between US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin is a testament to the new US administration returning to a global agenda with traditional values.
The adviser to the Head of the Office of the President Mykhailo Podoliak stated this in a comment to RBC-Ukraine.
"Certainly, the new US president immediately became actively involved in the global agenda. In my opinion, the telephone conversation between Biden and Putin indicates the new administration's key priority, a kind of signal: we are returning to the world agenda with traditional values and traditional toughness towards those who break the rules," Podoliak said.
And although according to him, the formal reason for the conversation concerned strategic disarmament, its content was much broader and more extensive and looks ideal for the interests of Ukraine.
"Joe Biden not only reaffirmed his key position on America's unconditional support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. But he raised the issue of supporting our sovereignty first, in fact, in the context of well-known threats and risks from Russia against the rules and values of the civilized world," Podoliak added.
The adviser to the head of the OP is convinced that Russia has only one chance for at least minimally normal relations with America and the civilized world, completely ceasing Russia's aggressive policy.
"And first, ceasing aggression against Ukraine, Russia returning all our temporarily occupied territories, refusing the support of various illegal armed gangs. President Biden emphasized this very clearly, objectively and systematically," he said.
