Kuleba announced the development of joint measures with the West to contain Russia

Ukraine, together with Western partners, is working closely on a large-scale package of sanctions aimed at containing Russia, Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said in an interview with the German newspaper Bild.

According to him, the measures include issues of diplomacy, work on economic sanctions, as well as increased defense cooperation between the West and Ukraine.

Kuleba also expressed the opinion that Russia’s recent talks with representatives of NATO and the United States demonstrated the culmination of deterrence diplomacy.

Earlier, US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland said that Washington had developed 18 different scenarios for action in case the situation around Ukraine escalated, and also noted that it would take more time to reach agreements between the Russian Federation and the States.

Moscow, in turn, has repeatedly rejected Western accusations of escalating the situation around Ukraine, saying that it is not going to attack anyone. According to the Russian authorities, such statements are used as a pretext to place more NATO military equipment near the borders of the Russian Federation.
