Pentagon: We would welcome Russia to the negotiating table with Ukraine if it did so

The Pentagon said the US would welcome Russia’s decision to sit down at the negotiating table with Ukraine if Moscow chooses to do so.

“Russia can sit down at the negotiating table anytime, anywhere, and that would be a positive step,” a Pentagon spokesman said at a press conference on Friday.

The Kremlin announced Moscow’s “openness” to negotiations with the Ukrainian side, but Kyiv must understand that the longer it agrees to negotiations, the more difficult it will be to negotiate with Moscow.

Moscow indicated that the dialogue, which had previously taken place several rounds in Belarus and Istanbul, was frozen by Kyiv.
