"The American side did not support the proposal of Russian President Vladimir Putin to hold a conversation with US President J. Biden on March 19 or 22 in an open video conference to discuss the accumulated bilateral issues, as well as issues of strategic stability," the message says.
The Russian side also said that another opportunity was missed "to find a way out of the impasse created by Washington's fault in Russian-American relations."
As it was reported earlier, the aggravation of relations between Moscow and Washington took place after March 16, when U.S. intelligence published a report on interference in the U.S. presidential election in 2020. According to intelligence, Russia and Iran tried to influence the presidential election.
Biden called Russian leader Vladimir Putin a killer and promised that Russia would pay for interfering in the presidential election in the United States.
