The Office of the President rejects the possibility of a "big deal" on Ukraine between the US and Russia

The newly appointed Deputy Head of the Office of the President, Andrii Sybiha, in charge of foreign policy, rejected the possibility of a "big deal" between the presidents of Russia and the United States on Ukraine behind its back.

Sybiha assured this in an interview with the EP, Rubryka reports.

When asked whether a major agreement between the United States and Russia on Ukraine, concluded behind its back, was possible, Sybiha said he absolutely rejected it.

"These are conspiracy theories. There will be no such thing. My confidence is based on the fact that we have the United States' firm position, based on maintaining Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty.

And we informed the American party in detail about the security situation development along the Ukrainian border, the challenges facing the Ukrainian state today in counteracting Russian aggression," Sybiha said.

He noted that on the eve of the meeting of the Presidents of Russia and the United States on June 16 in Geneva, the Ukrainian party proved its position in talks with partners.

"I mean a conversation with the United States, Canada, and our other key allies," Sybiha said, adding that a telephone conversation between the Ukrainian and American presidents could "fix the coherence and coordination of positions."

"We understand that Ukraine's position, and recent challenges, and the recent high level of threat, have been proven to our American friends and partners," he said.
