Canada Global (Web News) In response to Joe Biden’s suggestion that he was willing to meet with President Vladimir Putin about a potential resolution to the situation in Ukraine, the Kremlin declared on Friday that President Putin is amenable to discussions and believes in a diplomatic solution.
Speaking alongside French President Emmanuel Macron, Biden stated that Putin’s withdrawal of soldiers from Ukraine was the only way to stop the war there and that if Putin wanted to do so, he could contact the head of the Kremlin.
When asked about Biden’s comments, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov adopted a conciliatory tone, stressing that while Putin remained open to talks, Russia would not leave Ukraine.
In order to protect our interests, the Russian president has always been, is, and will continue open to dialogue, Peskov told reporters.
Putin has stated that he has no regrets about starting what he refers to as Russia’s “special military operation” against Ukraine, portraying it as a turning point where, after decades of humiliation following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia finally stood up against haughty Western imperialism.
Putin, according to Ukraine and the West, lacks justification for what they describe as an occupation war in the style of imperialism. Ukraine has declared that it will fight until the last Russian soldier has left its borders.
