Russia - Q&A (12 Nov. 2021)


Q: The UN Security Council, which met yesterday, did not produce a resolution but only a communiqué from France and the other nations, with the exception of Russia and China. What importance can such a communique have and how does it affect today’s 2+2?

Has the United States warned you that according to their analyses, Russia could be preparing to invade Ukraine in a move echoing its annexation of Crimea in 2014?

A: I refer you to the communiqué issued today following the meeting between the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs and the Minister for the Armed Forces with their Russian counterparts.
