Direct speech to the question whether the US is going to return to the oligarchs from the Russian Federation their assets, such as yachts, or use them as reparations: “Our goal is not to return them. Our goal is to use them better than in this way. ..
You can be sure our goal is not to sit still and then bring them back."
Details: At the same time, he added that he wants to be as careful as possible when answering this question.
He noted that discussions on this issue are ongoing in the White House.
Sullivan also commented on Biden's words, calling Russia's actions in Ukraine "genocide". According to him, it seems that Russian President Vladimir Putin is trying to wipe Ukrainian identity from the face of the earth.
According to him, the war between Russia and Ukraine could continue for "months." Biden adviser predicts protracted conflict.
In addition, Sullivan said that the Biden administration has not yet decided whether the US will lift sanctions on Russia if it reaches an agreement with Ukraine.
Direct speech: "Much depends on the form and scope of this diplomatic agreement, and much depends on what the Ukrainians and the Europeans agree with us."
According to him, the United States does not plan to conclude an agreement with Russia behind the back of the head of the Ukrainians, under which she will receive a bunch of indulgences: “But if some measure of easing sanctions was built into some reliable diplomatic solution led by the Ukrainians, this is which we would gladly appreciate."
