The USA promises to continue to support Ukraine until victory.
The US State Department calls on the aggressor country Russia end the war and to withdraw its occupying forces from Ukraine.
This was announced on November 18 during a briefing stated Deputy Press Secretary of the State Department Vedant Patel.
The State Department is convinced that despite the atrocities and vile tactics, the Russian Federation will not be able to win.
“We strongly urge Russia to withdraw its forces in order to put an end to an unnecessary war that it cannot and will not win – regardless of how vile and reckless its tactics are,” the representative of the State Department emphasized.
Patel once again emphasized that it is Russia that is responsible for the atrocities in the recently occupied territories of Ukraine. According to him, the latest report of the Conflict Observatory describes in detail numerous cases of illegal detention, torture and disappearance of people in Kherson and the region, committed by the armed forces of the Russian invaders.
“Today, we again call on the Russian Federation to stop its filtering operations, violations and neglect of human rights, contempt for international humanitarian law and the UN Charter,” he said.
Earlier, the representative of the National Security Council of the White House, John Kirby, said that the USA does not put pressure on Ukraine in the matter of negotiations with the Russian Federation. He emphasized that this decision “can only be made by President Volodymyr Zelenskyi”.
