Basurin spoke about the expectations from the talks between the presidents of Russia and the United States, Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden, on the Russia 24 TV channel, TASS reports.
“We, of course, expect peace to come,” Basurin said. According to him, if it so wishes, the United States can prevent bloodshed in Donbass, and then the civil war in Ukraine will end. At the same time, he stressed that the development of future events and whether the United States wants peace or escalation will become clear a few days after the presidents' conversation.
The talks between Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden were held on December 7 via a special video link.
