The meeting of U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian leader Vladimir Putin started on June 16 in Geneva.
The summit consisted of three parts. Ukraine was expected to be one of the topics of talks between the American and Russian leaders. The U.S. delegation included U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The Kremlin noted that communication will be conditionally divided into three parts: in a narrow format (in the presence of Lavrov and Blinken), in an expanded format, and after a break for tea and coffee - the continuation of negotiations. In total, taking into account the breaks, the talks lasted four to five hours.
