Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden does not rule out that he will hold talks with Ukrainian and Russian Presidents Volodymyr Zelensky and Vladimir Putin.

"In all probability," Biden said when asked about plans to talk to the leaders of Russia and Ukraine.

According to the head of the White House, his dialogue with Ukrainian and Russian colleagues may be held in the near future. He intends to raise the issue of growing tensions on the Ukrainian border in connection with the accumulation of Russian troops.
