Spokesperson of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov stated that Russia would strive to keep the relations with the U.S. even after the tough talk of U.S. President Joe Biden towards Russia’s President Vladimir Putin as Gazeta.ru reported.
“The president has declared desire to continue relations despite everything because it is in the interests of countries and the whole world,” Peskov said as a response to the question of whether or not the world should expect another Cold War.
Meanwhile, Peskov added that “we cannot miss the statements of Biden”.
The escalation of the relations between Moscow and Washington occurred after March 16, when the American intelligence published a report on the interference in the 2020 U.S. presidential elections. According to the intelligence, Russia and Iran tried to influence the elections.
The document says that Russia held a discretion campaign against then candidate for the presidency Joe Biden through allies of ex-president Donald Trump.

Spokesperson of the White House Jen Psaki reported that on Friday, the U.S. President will visit Georgia and will be busy, consequently, it is impossible to hold a dialogue insisted by Putin.
