U.S. urges Moscow to address election, chemical weapons’ and Ukraine issues

The United States government has asked the Kremlin to act on U.S. concerns on election meddling, the Salisbury chemical attack in UK, as well as the military developments in Ukraine and Syria.

Canadian-British news agency Reuters reported on Friday, April 20, that the security adviser of the U.S. federal government, John Bolton met with the Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov and noted that improvement of relations was in the interest of both countries, but Russia must address allegations that Moscow interfered in the 2016 U.S. election and poisoned a former Russian spy in Britain.

According to the statement about the meeting issued by Washington, the U.S. has also voiced concerns about Russia’s actions in Ukraine, where it has been fuelling the Donbas War, and in Syria, where Russian military has supported the Syrian government regime, which has been accused of using banned chemical weapons against civilians.

Moscow has repeatedly denied allegations of having sent fighters and weapons into eastern Ukraine, just as it has denied involvement in the poison attack on Sergei Skripal and claimed that Damascus does not have and has not used chemical weapons.
