“As for Russian President Vladimir Putin, he is ready for contacts with his American counterpart,” said the representative of the Kremlin.
It was reported earlier that Trump canceled the meeting with Putin at the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires due to the conflict in the Kerch Strait.
On November 25, the special forces of the Russian Federation captured three naval vessels of the Ukrainian Navy at the Kerch Bridge. As a result of the attack, 24 Ukrainian sailors were detained, and six of them were injured.
After the incident, Trump said that the United States and European partners are not satisfied with the aggravation of relations between Ukraine and Russia and are making efforts to solve the problem.
