(Reuters) – No discussions are taking place about the possibility of a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Joe Biden, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said on Monday, according to the Tass news agency.

A White House spokesperson said on Feb. 22, two days before Russian armed forces entered Ukraine, that a summit was “certainly not in the plans”, and that a de-escalation of Russia’s conflict with Ukraine would be needed before any such meeting took place.
