Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba offers his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov to negotiate about the Minsk process that is currently blocked. Kuleba said so during the closed online discussion with the experts of leading French analytical centers in the foreign policy area and representatives of key French outlets.

"Ministers of the Federative Republic of Germany Heiko Maas and France Jean-Yves Le Drian put in maximum effort to get Russian minister Sergei Lavrov involved for the meeting. If he agreed I would like to have a frank speech about how to take the Minsk process where Russia brought it to", Kuleba said.

The Ukrainian minister also insists that the Minsk agreement starts from the provision of a comprehensive ceasefire.

Earlier, US intelligence revealed Russia's plans for a possible military invasion of Ukraine, which may take place in early 2022. According to sources, it is a probable attack from the annexed Crimea, across the border from Russia and through Belarus.

As we reported, Politico published new satellite photos taken by Western experts on Monday confirm recent reports that Russia is again concentrating troops and military hardware on the border with Ukraine. The images were taken by Colorado-based US space technology company Maxar Technologies.

Later, Bloomberg published the report of Janes Company, which states that Russia is moving tanks to the Ukrainian border. This time, observers noticed a battalion of T80-U tanks in the Voronezh region.

President Volodymyr Zelensky reacted to the information of Western mass media about the concentration of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine. According to him, "psychological pressure" from Russia on Ukraine has not been effective for a long time.
