"We heard about such a possibility from our American counterparts, but we are still waiting for final confirmation, but since the very beginning President Putin has been open to any alternatives," Peskov said.

Peskov told CNN Putin is ready to participate in a joint press conference or hold one of his own in Geneva. He added Putin is not going to Geneva just to appear on the same platform as Biden but because "the poor state of relations" between the US and Russia demands a summit.

The meeting of U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian leader Vladimir Putin will take place in Geneva on June 16. Relevant information was confirmed by the Kremlin and the White House.

Putin and Biden are expected to discuss bilateral relations, strategic stability, as well as topical issues of the international order, the fight against the pandemic and the settlement of regional conflicts.
