US State Department: Putin's demands on Ukraine contradict UN Charter

Jun 18, 2024

The US State Department has criticized Vladimir Putin's so-called "peace plan," noting that Russia is not ready for serious discussions on peace in Ukraine.

This was stated by US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller during a briefing, according to Yevropeiska Pravda.


A U.S. Department of State spokesman called the Kremlin's statement "another maximalist statement" in which he called on Ukraine to give up even more of its sovereign territory than that currently occupied by Russia.

"No responsible country can say that this is a reasonable basis for peace. It contradicts the UN Charter. It contradicts basic morality. It goes against basic common sense," Miller said.

He noted that the Russian Federation is not ready for any serious, good-faith talks.

"Russia's actions make this especially clear as it continues its bombing of Ukraine's critical infrastructure, threatens ships in the Black Sea, and forcibly relocates tens of thousands of Ukrainian children," Miller said.
