Only Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky can decide when to hold talks with Russia.

APA reports that John Kirby, coordinator of strategic communications of the White House Security Council, said these words.

He also said that America's addition of Russia to the list of countries sponsoring terrorism will make possible negotiations difficult for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

US authorities believe there are better alternatives.

Kirby said that the United States plans to send a new military aid package to Ukraine in the coming days.
