In recent days, Washington has reiterated that it opposes not only a cessation of hostilities in Ukraine, but also any peace initiative that Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, may promote.
The US has reiterated that it does not want an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine for fear that Russia will use it to resupply its ranks, the White House National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications, John Kirby, said on Tuesday.
From Washington they assure that Moscow has resource difficulties for all that it has “spent in the last year in terms of ammunition and missiles” during the development of the special operation in Ukraine. However, these problems could be overcome with a ceasefire, the spokesman said during a press conference at the White House.
“That’s another reason why frankly we don’t want to see a ceasefire right nowbecause a ceasefire right now, freezing the lines where they are, basically gives you [al presidente ruso, Vladimir Putin] the time and space it needs to try to re-equip, bolster the ranks, and make up for that resource drain,” Kirby stated.
In recent days, the White House has reiterated that it not only opposes a ceasefire in Ukraine, but to any peace initiative that the Russian president and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, can promote after their meeting in Moscow, which took place between March 20 and 22.
According to Kirby, Russia and China intend to “rewrite the rules of the game globally”. Likewise, “these are two countries that chafe against this rules-based international order that the United States and many of our allies and partners have built since the end of World War II,” he said in an interview with the ‘Fox News Sunday’ program. .
