“Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said on Thursday he welcomed U.S. President Joe Biden's tough messaging when he met President Vladimir Putin this week and said now was the time to make Russia withdraw from Ukraine,” the statement says.

The Ukrainian Foreign Minister also said that the Presidents of the United States and Russia did not discuss any agreements on Ukraine without the knowledge of Kyiv at a meeting in Geneva.

"President Putin saw... no invitation to bargain from the United States on the Ukrainian matter," Kuleba said. "And this is a matter of principle because we agreed with the United States that no deals on Ukraine will be made without Ukraine, and America kept its promise."

As it was reported earlier, the conversation between two presidents took place in Geneva on June 16. The American delegation included US State Secretary Anthony Blinken, while the Russian delegation was represented by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. The meeting was divided into two parts: it was a narrow format in the presence of Lavrov and Blinken as well as an expanded format.

The conversation lasted about four hours. Upon its completion, Russian President was the first to hold a press conference, during which he described the meeting as “good”.
