The Ukraine conflict continues to dominate headlines. In a speech Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the U.S. and the North Atlantic Treat Organization hadn’t adequately addressed his concerns over NATO’s expansion into Eastern Europe.

Putin wants NATO to retract the military alliance back to a “1997 status quo”  and for the U.S. to pull back missile systems in the region.

The Russian president said Moscow had been “swindled, basically lied to” about NATO’s expansion eastward.

“NATO refers to the right of countries to choose freely, but you can not strengthen someone’s security at the expense of others,” Putin said.

In a Tuesday call with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Secretary of State Antony Blinken “urged immediate Russian de-escalation and the withdrawal of troops and equipment from Ukraine’s borders,” according to State Department spokesman Ned Price.
