The SBU, Security Service of Ukraine announced that a Russian mercenary, the founder and leader of the Pyatnashka terrorist organization is now on the wanted list.

Earlier, we reported that Russia and the U.S. are facing serious differences in terms of the approach to the solution of the Donbas conflict. But that doesn't halt the dialogue between them much. Dmitriy Peskov, the Russian presidential press secretary said so as quoted by TASS.
"The used phrases reflect positions of the sides. Of course, different explanations show that there are serious differences in this regard. But the key thing is that there's a readiness to continue the dialogue to discuss these differences," he said.
Peskov explained that during the conversation between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin, the presidents discussed the ongoing conflict in Donbas. The Kremlin posed it as a domestic Ukrainian conflict, while the American side said the U.S. "supported Ukraine's sovereignty in the face of the ongoing Russian aggression."
