Defence Attache to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow was informed about the position of the Russian Defence Ministry
On October 16, the Defence Attaché to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow was invited to the Main Directorate for International Military Cooperation of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation.
The US Department of Defence representative was informed about the position of the Russian Defence Ministry on the recent statement made by the Military Attaché to the U.S. Embassy in Kiev Air Force Col. Brittany Stewart on the joint efforts of the US and Ukrainian Armed Forces on countering the so-called “Russian aggression”.
The American side was briefed on the false claims of the statement and its’ provocative nature, that compels the Ukrainian side to the military resolution of the internal conflict in Donbass.
The abovementioned statement is contradictory to the previous declarations made by the Pentagon officials on the settlement of the situation in Ukraine by peaceful means only.
