Biden also noted that the desire to hold the meeting was not related to the fact of the concentration of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine.

“This did not affect my desire to hold a one-on-one meeting. - But if you noticed that he (Putin) had more troops earlier, he pulled out the troops. The troops are still (in the border area), but they have become much smaller, than a month ago," the US President said.

Meanwhile, head of the President Office of Ukraine Andriy Yermak states that the president of Ukraine and the US are interested in the bilateral meeting.

He stated that the meeting of the presidents was discussed during the visit of US State Secretary Antony Blinken to Ukraine.

According to Yermak, the presidents of both countries are interested in it.
