Kremlin: “US & Russia on the Brink of a Direct Clash” in Ukraine

“Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Monday that the United States’ ‘dangerous and short-sighted policy‘ has put it ‘on the brink of a direct clash‘ with Moscow, according to state media reports. ‘It is the US’ desire to maintain American hegemony at all costs… as well as its arrogant unwillingness to engage in a serious dialogue on security guarantees’ that led to the current crisis, she continued, in reference to Moscow’s last February pre-invasion appeal for “guarantees” that Ukraine would not enter NATO.”
