Date of the“ contact ” Presidents of Russia and the United States Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden have not yet been agreed, but Moscow hopes that it will take place in the coming days. According to RIA Novosti, this was announced by Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Sergei Ryabkov.

“ We would like to hope that contact between the two presidents will take place in the coming days. I will say right away that the date has not yet been agreed upon. There are difficulties in aligning the calendars of the two leaders & raquo;, & mdash; Ryabkov said.

According to him, “ contact '' two presidents are now badly needed, because the problems affecting both countries are multiplying.

“ Contact is very necessary, we have multiplying problems. There is no movement on bilateral affairs, which more and more pass into the phase of an acute crisis. There is no mutual understanding about how we should de-escalate the situation in Europe, and further down the list, '', & mdash; noted the deputy minister.

According to Ryabkov, “presidents must give impetus to their teams.” “ But the situation in Europe is very worrying. It is clear that this will be one of the main topics for discussion at the presidential level, '', & mdash; he added.

The Washington Post reported on November 30 that during a visit to Moscow by CIA Director William Burns, the possibility of a personal meeting between Putin and Biden in the first half of 2022 was discussed. According to the newspaper, Washington suggested a possible meeting of the presidents early next year. In addition, sources of the publication reported that Biden is preparing to call Putin in January.

In November 2021, the American media repeatedly reported that Russia was concentrating its troops on the border with Ukraine. This was followed by official warnings with threats to increase sanctions in the event of Russian aggression against Ukraine. In addition, journalists reported on various plans for the invasion of Russian troops into the territory of Ukraine.

One of the scenarios, citing sources and US intelligence data, was reported by Bloomberg. According to him, Washington warned European allies that Russian troops could cross the Ukrainian border from the Crimea, the mainland border and through Belarus. The operation can involve 100 battalion tactical groups, that is, about 100 thousand military, the article says. According to Bloomberg sources, the plan covers a large area and involves preparation for a “ potentially long-term occupation. '' They noted that about half of the tactical groups have already taken their positions.

The Kremlin called these messages a targeted information campaign aimed at presenting Russia as a threat to the settlement of the conflict in eastern Ukraine. “ We see that there is a targeted information campaign, stuffing. Bloomberg is used as a pipe for stuffing, some American newspapers are involved. This is building up tension. This is an attempt to present Russia as a side that threatens the settlement process, '', & mdash; said the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov.

Such stuffing can also be 'camouflage' to 'cover up aggressive thoughts that may take place in Kiev,' he admitted. “ Aggressive in terms of intent to resolve the situation in the southeast by force '', & mdash; clarified the representative of the Kremlin.
