Russian President Vladimir Putin directed a New Year letter to the U.S. President Donald Trump, which reads that Moscow is ready for dialogue with the U.S. on a ‘wide-ranging agenda’, reports Voice of America 

‘He confirmed that Russia is open for dialogue with the USA on the most wide-ranging agenda. Moscow has said one of the key issues it wanted to discuss with the United States is Washington's plans to withdraw from a Cold War era nuclear arms pact,’ the outlet reported.

In late November, Trump suddenly abolished the scheduled meeting with Putin at G20 Summit in Argentina, referring to the tension around the capture of Ukrainian warships by Russia. 

On November 25, the coast guard ships of the Russian Navy attacked the ships of the Ukrainian Navy, which have been carrying out a scheduled transition from Odesa port to Mariupol port in the Sea of Azov.

So Russia is ready to return the Ukrainian POWs and return the Ukrainian ships? That’s why Trump pulled out of the talks previously scheduled. So why talk when Putin keeps up the aggressive war footing. The Sea of Azov is international waters. What would Putin say when Ukraine invites British navel vessels to port? Russian politicians call it a prelude to world war 3. It’s within Ukrainian’s rights to invite foreign navy ships to their ports. Russia doesn’t respect law or treaties. Seizing Crimea was illegal. It was unrecognized by the UN. The EU doesn’t recognize it. Why, when Russia acts lawlessly reward them. Get something first, then talk.
