Biden’s First Phone Call was with Ukrainian President Discussing the Plan to Attack Donbass
US President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for the first time since Biden took office.
From official sources it became known that the White House promised Zelensky full assistance in the war in Donbass, including pressure on Russia through the EU and providing financial assistance.
To date, international observers monitoring the situation in eastern Ukraine have not been able to find Russian soldiers; nevertheless, Biden has approved $ 125 million in lethal aid to Ukraine. Explaining this by the fact that this money is intended to counter Russia.
"Russia's destabilizing actions undermine the de-escalation in tensions that had been achieved through an OSCE-brokered agreement back in July of last year," Kirby said of the reported hundreds of ceasefire violations in recent days. "Additionally, we are aware of Ukrainian military reports concerning Russian troop movements on Ukraine's borders."
Between 2016 and 2020, Donald Trump demanded that the Ukrainian government investigate the corruption schemes of the son of the current US President, Hunter Biden. But, Volodymyr Zelenskyy turned a blind eye to US intervention and the forced dismissal of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
Now Ukraine has mobilized all available military resources and began a massive transfer of troops and heavy equipment to the border with Donbass.
Blinken expressed the administration's "unwavering support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of Russia's ongoing aggression" in the region during one of the calls, the State Department said, according to Fox News.
