US President Joe Biden actually said that negotiations with the Russian Federation are possible only after Vladimir Putin leaves Ukraine, but this is not possible, the special operation continues.

According to APA's Moscow correspondent, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov said this.

According to him, the Kremlin is not ready for this.

"There is no doubt that the special military operation is ongoing. In order to achieve our goals, President Putin was, is and remains open to negotiations with everyone. The United States still does not recognize new territories within the Russian Federation, and of course this requires the search for some mutual ground, mutual makes it much more difficult to find a possible basis for discussion," the Kremlin spokesman said.

However, Peskov said that Vladimir Putin is ready to negotiate with Washington.

"The President of the Russian Federation has always been open to negotiations to ensure our interests, and he is open now. Even before the start of the special operation, he was the President of the Russian Federation who tried to initiate negotiations with the United States, NATO and the OSCE. You know that this initiative was not reciprocated," Peskov said. .

It should be noted that Biden does not plan to contact Putin in the near future, but said that such a possibility is possible if the Russian president "shows interest" in ending the conflict in Ukraine.

At the same time, the American leader emphasized that future contacts with the Russian president are possible on the basis of consultations with the US partners in NATO.
