“No negotiations in which Ukraine is not in the driver’s seat. No negotiations about Ukraine without Ukraine”
The U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, made an unannounced trip to Ukraine on November 8, 2022, pledging that unwavering support for Ukraine will continue until the nation wins this war.
“We have been unified from day one, and we have not seen any cracks in that unity. Europe is unified. NATO is unified. We’ve had bipartisan support in the United States for support for Ukraine,” Thomas-Greenfield told CNN.
When asked about reports that US officials have urged Ukraine to signal that they are still open to diplomatic discussions with Russia, amid concerns that public support for the country’s war effort could wane, Thomas-Greenfield demurred.
“We’ve been clear. No negotiations in which Ukraine is not in the driver’s seat. No negotiations about Ukraine without Ukraine,” she said.
