image for Kremlin says no chance of peace with Kyiv after Zelensky Washington trip

The Kremlin said that nothing good would come from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's trip to Washington on Wednesday and that Russia saw no chance of peace talks with Kyiv.

In a call with reporters, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that continued Western arms supplies to Ukraine would lead to a "deepening" of the conflict - something which could backfire on Kyiv, he warned.

"The supply of weapons continues and the range of supplied weapons is expanding.

All of this, of course, leads to an aggravation of the conflict.

Zelensky was due to meet US President Joe Biden and Congressional leaders on Wednesday in his first foreign trip since Moscow sent tens of thousands of troops into his country on Feb. 24.

Asked whether Moscow had any expectations that something positive could come from Zelensky's trip, Peskov answered: "No.".

During his visit, the United States is also set to approve the delivery of advanced Patriot missile systems to Ukraine as part of the latest multi-billion dollar package of military support for Kyiv. »

For the first time in American history, a congressional committee has recommended that a former president be criminally prosecuted – and not just for any crimes.

The referral powerfully reminds us that the assault on the Capitol was not a spontaneous spasm of violence.

It was the culmination of a concerted effort to reject the results of a fair election, an effort that began on election day itself, when it became clear that Trump was headed to certain defeat. »
