Russian President Putin Not Opposed to Another Conversation with President Biden
Tension with Russia and Ukraine is continuing to escalate. According to Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov, Russia would welcome another conversation between President Vladimir Putin and President Biden. The two Presidents last spoke on December 31st when President Biden attempted to defuse the situation in Ukraine where 100,000 Russian troops are waiting along the border. Peskov said “we also do not rule out another communication between the two Presidents and believe that in any case such communication can only be welcomed, it is useful for both states.’ Peskov said the meeting would only take place after Russia had a chance to review the US written response to its requested security guarantees.
