Will Washington’s written response to Russia’s security concern be different from the verbal response at the talks?
Lavrov is announcing that Russia today knows the US intention is to go to war; and that Russia is prepared and is already on war footing on all fronts.
That Sherman told Ryabkov on Monday “the United States and Russia agree that a nuclear war can never be won and must never be fought” is just as false, Lavrov has now declared. — John Helmer
The report from John Helmer, a long time correspondent reporting from Moscow, on the Russian/American security talks is the same as what I have reported on the IPE website.
It is clear that the Russians have had enough, but it is not clear that Washington understands this. And that is the danger.
