“There are still notes in favor of the need to speak with Moscow through containment, pressure, and so on. We all hear the words that Moscow will have to pay for this, for this. All this, of course, does not ease the general atmosphere, but again I repeat: after all, both sides have an intention to speak, President Putin and President Biden”, – Peskov said in an interview with Channel One.
