It is necessary that Russia’s representatives join OSCE observers, which are currently in Ukraine’s east, in order to implement the Geneva accords, clear buildings, disarm and provide amnesty, Biden believes.

“This is a country where a state coup has recently occurred,” the presidential spokesperson stressed. Thus, he said, “it’s natural that any country would take special preventive measures regarding its own security”. Meanwhile, Dmitry Peskov emphasized that “Russia is an absolutely sovereign state that is free to deploy its troops without any restrictions in any location of its territory”.
