Biden and His Aides Reportedly Prepare For Virtual Summit With Putin in December

While there were no official announcements about a possible meeting between the presidents of Russia and the United States, Joe Biden said he would likely speak with Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Russian officials earlier mulled over the possibility of Putin-Biden talks before the end of 2021.

US President Joe Biden and his aides are preparing for next month's virtual summit with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, The Washington Post reported Tuesday, citing sources.

The analysts view the reported virtual call as a chance to reduce the simmering tensions but also to "signal the costs of an invasion to the Kremlin." The threats of the purported Russian "invasion" in Ukraine were reported by multiple Western media outlets before, raising eyebrows in Moscow before being debunked by the Kremlin.

Aside from this, Washington reportedly floated the possibility of an in-person summit between Putin and Biden in 2022, the newspaper noted.

The possibility of an in-person meeting was brought up by CIA Director William J. Burns when he visited Moscow earlier in November, the sources told The WaPo.
