According to him, the US position on the situation in Ukraine has remained unchanged for the past seven years.

Sullivan said that the United States for seven years "made every effort to resolve this issue" and will continue to "work on it seriously."

"We will not weaken the sanctions, in any case, neither the United States nor our allies and partners intend to weaken the sanctions imposed as a result of these events," he said.

As we reported earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that the introduction of sanctions increased the risks of unilateral use of military force. According to him, the world's biggest players must "join their forces in fateful areas" during difficult moments. 

He also criticized the use of trade barriers, sanctions, and other restrictions in "attempts to blame other countries for internal problems".

"Such games with no rules critically increase the risks of unilateral use of military force. That is the danger," the president said.
