US-Russia’s recent meeting fails as tension aggravates over Ukraine issue

Simultaneously, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov warned that Russia is not afraid of anyone, not even the United States, and that Moscow will not bow down.

Following it, the Western countries have also taken an aggresive stand and threatened to impose sanctions against Russia. They have even promised enormous military assistance to Ukraine. Consequently, the Russian President had proposed a ‘security pact’ given such aggressive stance of Western countries. The proposal insisted that Ukraine should not be granted membership in NATO at any cost. However, even though the United States and NATO declined this demand, they agreed to discuss the issue. After that, both the parties had held meetings thrice. But, none of them were fruitful.
