Putin calls suggestions Russia is planning to attack Ukraine "provocative," following Biden call
CA, 09 Dec 2021
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Wednesday welcomed U.S. President Joe Biden's "personal role" in trying to attain peace in eastern Ukraine, in his first comments after Biden held talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin a day earlier.
Speaking at a news conference, Zelenskiy also hoped that Ukraine and Russia could agree to a new ceasefire and prisoner exchanges when their representatives held talks on the conflict in Ukraine's Donbass region.
In another press conference, Putin told reporters the talks had been open and constructive with Biden and the main thing was that there was a possibility to continue the dialogue. But he called suggestions that Russia was planning to attack Ukraine "provocative."
Putin and Biden spoke on Tuesday to set out their opposing positions on Ukraine, which says it is braced for a possible invasion by tens of thousands of Russian troops close to its border.
