Russia said on Sunday it would not make concessions under US pressure and warned that this week's talks on the Ukraine crisis might end early, while Washington said no breakthroughs were expected and progress depended on de-escalation from Moscow. The hard line from Moscow underscored the fragile prospects for negotiations that Washington hopes will avert the danger of a new Russian invasion of Ukraine, at the tensest point in US-Russia relations since the Cold War ended three decades ago.

Talks begin on Monday in Geneva before moving to Brussels and Vienna, but the state-owned RIA news agency quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying it was entirely possible the diplomacy could end after a single meeting. "I can't rule out anything, this is an entirely possible scenario and the Americans ... should have no illusions about this," he was quoted as saying. "Naturally, we will not make any concessions under pressure" or amid constant threats from participants in the talks, said Ryabkov, who will lead the Russian delegation in Geneva.

Russia is only partaking in these talks in the first place so they can say that war is the only option. Putin’s been spewing this for weeks.

Anyone with common sense can see that. Our current administration needs to study how deals are made to America’s advantage. Biden doesn’t know when to shut up. Rather than walk softly and carry a big stick, he steps in it every time, telegraphing “We surrender” before every confrontation begins.

Biden is not formidable. Sadly he belongs in a retirement home playing bingo. He is like someone's aged liberal crazed grandpa. Putin is probably more afraid of Kamala and thats not saying much, worst she could do is hit you with a stiletto and call you a misogynist. Russia is making big political moves and people actually fear Putin. End times moving forward. Rapture imminent.
