Macron wants guarantees for Russia. Eloquent US response

Kirby was asked what he thought of Emmanuel Macron’s words and whether security guarantees for Russia were the topic of talks between the presidents of the US and France during their a recent meeting in the White House.

– Ukraine was not a threat to anyone, especially not to Russia. There is no excuse and no evidence for Russia’s claims that its security was threatened. Ukraine’s security has been and is threatened by Russia, and that’s what we’re focusing on,” he added.

In an interview broadcast on Saturday, Macron said that “the West should consider how to respond to Russia’s stated need for security guarantees if Vladimir Putin agrees to negotiations to end the war with Ukraine.” “Europe must start preparing to build a new security architecture on the continent and think about what it should look like in the future,” he added.

Kirby also said that it was no surprise that the Kremlin announced that it would not comply with the EU decision to imposing a price cap on Russian crude oil.

“We believe that this price cap can make a difference by limiting Russia’s ability to exploit the oil market excessively and use that revenue to kill more Ukrainians,” he said. He added that the mechanism was deliberately designed so that the ceiling could be changed depending on the needs.

Referring to Beijing’s suggestion that it also not follow the cap, Kirby said that whether countries “buy energy within or outside the cap” would help them negotiate significant cuts in gas prices with Russia.
