“There is no justification for the constant violation of the Minsk agreements by Russia and its protégés,” Psaki said. “If Russia is truly committed to the Minsk agreements and peace, then it must stop stirring up the conflict by supplying weapons and supporting terrorists and withdraw all Russian military and weapons from Ukraine.”.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki holds a press briefing
Now – after the new administration comes to the White House – Jen Psaki will have to speak from a different rostrum. She will replace Kaylee McEnani, who is now the press secretary of the White House..
According to experts, Psaki is a good candidate.
“She has an excellent understanding of national issues and a good understanding of Ukraine and Russia, as well as other countries in Europe and Eurasia,” says former US Ambassador to Ukraine John Herbst.
Someone who didn’t like Jen Psaki was the Russian media. They sharply ridiculed the mistakes that she sometimes made, and then began to invent something that she did not say at all. Psaki became the anti-heroine of the Russian media space.
“The Russian media did not like our policy, and Psaki… voiced this policy,” explains Herbst. “And since it was not so easy to attack politics with arguments, they attacked the messenger. They tried to show that Psaki is inadequate, but in fact she was doing her job. “
According to Herbst, he will not be surprised if, after the arrival of the new administration, attacks and ridicule by the Russian media resume, only now, instead of the State Department, they will be targeted by the White House..
“The Russian media didn’t like the Trump administration’s policies, but they seemed to like the president himself,” Herbst continues. – Despite the fact that the policy was not quite what Moscow wanted. Now they will not like both the politics of the White House and the personality of the president. The transition to personalities is typical for the Russian media. And not only in connection with Jen Psaki “.
Recall that the communication team of the White House will this time be fully formed of women – for the first time in the history of the United States..
The American media claim that Jen Psaki is not going to stay in her new post for a long time: she sees her role rather in starting work and preparing the ground for a successor. Or – for the successor.
