The Ukrainian side initiated a meeting of the presidents of Ukraine, the United States, and Russia on the security situation in the region through video conferencing.
"President Zelensky invited President Biden – and we think it may work out – to hold a trilateral meeting, possibly through video conferencing, between presidents Biden, Zelensky, and Putin," Head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak said during an online conversation organized by the Atlantic Council on January 14, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
He noted that Kyiv was expecting Russia’s reaction to the proposal, while the United States called the proposal interesting.
In this context, Yermak praised the readiness of the United States to take an active part in efforts to resolve the security situation around Ukraine. He called Washington's position "very correct", stating that they were ready to join any existing negotiating format for the settlement in Ukraine but would continue their bilateral contacts with the Russians.
