US President Joe Biden does not rule out that he will hold talks with Ukrainian and Russian Presidents Volodymyr Zelensky and Vladimir Putin. Biden told reporters in Nantucket, Massachusetts, according to The Washington Post.
"In all probability," Biden said when asked about plans to talk to the leaders of Russia and Ukraine.
According to the head of the White House, his dialogue with Ukrainian and Russian colleagues may be held in the near future. He intends to raise the issue of growing tensions on the Ukrainian border in connection with the accumulation of Russian troops.
As it was reported by Bloomberg on November 11, the USA has warned its European partners about a possible Russian military operation against Ukraine. According to the agency, Washington's assessments are based on information that the American side has not yet shared with the EU. Officials familiar with the White House say this information is backed up by publicly available evidence.
The satellite photos taken by Western experts on November 2 confirmed 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, which handed them over to Politico.
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell warned that if the situation on Ukraine's borders worsens, the EU will not be able to support Kyiv with troops.
