Strategic Communications Coordinator at the US National Security Council John Kirby answered whether Kyiv could organize force missions in the Crimea.

“Citizens of Ukraine have the right to decide where and how they will conduct operations within their country,” the American official said during a briefing with reporters.

At the same time, Kirby did not respond to NBC information, according to which Washington knows that the UAF can take control of the peninsula, but does not support it because of the risk of starting a nuclear war.

Earlier, a White House spokesman said that the US authorities did not notice signs of preparation attack on Kyiv from the Russian side.
