What would it take for the U.S. to change its policies? President Vladimir Putin had a lot to say about this in his June 5 press conference with representatives of global media, looking at U.S. policy toward Ukraine and Russia.

“I think you would agree with me that no one cares about Ukraine in the United States,” he said. “All they care about is how great the United States is. The U.S. is not there to fight for Ukraine or the Ukrainian people. It is fighting for its own greatness and world leadership. There is no way they can allow Russia to succeed. Why? Because they believe that this would undermine U.S. leadership.”
