Russian and & nbsp; US presidents Vladimir Putin and & nbsp; Joe Biden held bilateral online talks. To improve Russian-American relations, the head of the & nbsp; RF suggested to his colleague that all restrictions on the & nbsp; work of diplomatic missions be canceled. At the & nbsp; meeting, Putin stressed that & nbsp; it is not & nbsp; to shift responsibility on & nbsp; shoulders of Russia & raquo; for & nbsp; development of the Ukrainian territory of NATO. He also recalled & nbsp; Kiev's ignorance of the Minsk agreements and & nbsp; provocative actions in & nbsp; Donbass.
