The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has denied reports that Kyiv and Washington are allegedly in talks on the deployment of missile defense systems in Ukraine.

"The reports that negotiations are underway on the deployment of missile defense systems on Ukrainian territory are untrue. Such negotiations are not being held and there's not even a hint of them," Foreign Ministry spokesman Yevhen Perebyinis told Interfax-Ukraine on Wednesday.

He said that Ukraine and the United States were in talks on financial assistance and that they did not envisage any additional requirements.

The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
