Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Russia Isn’t Planning to Attack Ukraine, Lavrov Says” – below is their description.

The top U.S. and Russian diplomats emerged from a 90-minute meeting in Geneva to discuss the standoff over Ukraine with little clear progress made but an agreement to keep talking.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the U.S. will soon send written responses to Russia addressing its concerns, while Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov dismissed Western “hysteria” over Ukraine and repeated that Moscow has no plans to attack its neighbor.

“If Russia wants to begin to convince the world that it has no aggressive intent toward Ukraine, a very good place to start would be deescalating,” Blinken said Friday at the end of a three-day European trip. The two sides agreed that negotiations should take place in a less emotional atmosphere, though Lavrov said he can’t say now whether talks are on the right path.

The meeting appeared to buy some time for both sides to pursue diplomacy amid increasingly urgent warnings by U.S. President Joe Biden that Russia could be planning an imminent intervention in Ukraine after having massed around 100,000 troops near its border. 

But the situation remains extremely tense.
