Russia replies with negative response to U.S. letter

Russia’s response to a U.S. letter regarding Ukraine showed little positive outcome for the efforts, according to a Kremlin spokesperson.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said soon the words left “little ground for optimism” and included “no positive response on the main issue,” according to The Hill.

“We can confirm we received a written follow-up from Russia,” the State Department wrote in a statement, Newsmax reported.

“It would be unproductive to negotiate in public, so we’ll leave it up to Russia if they want to discuss their response. We remain fully committed to dialog to address these issues and will continue to consult closely with our allies and partners, including Ukraine,” the spokesperson added.

The words come as Russia has built up 100,000 troops along the border of Ukraine.

In addition, Putin plans to travel to China on Feb. 4 for the Beijing Winter Olympic Games. No plans to meet with leaders regarding Ukraine have been announced.

The growing concern has led to some U.S. lawmakers to claim America should issue sanctions now against Russia, as speeches and letters have done nothing to change the matter.
