Kremlin hopes Putin and Trump can hold talks before June next year


Putin's wish list is topped by a desire to see an end to crippling anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the U.S. and its allies for Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula, its support for separatist insurgents in eastern Ukraine and other actions by Moscow.

Russian Federation charged that the three Ukrainian navy ships sailed into its territorial waters in the Kerch Strait Nov. 27.

However, prominent Russian lawmaker Leonid Slutsky said Trump probably fears that if he meets with Putin, his domestic rivals "will call him a Russian agent".

Ukraine has since condemned the incident as a Russian "act of aggression". United States President Donald Trump on Thursday cancelled an official meeting with Putin at the summit citing the Ukrainian crisis.

Putin put blame on Ukraine for the latest dispute between the two countries, adding that he considered it "too early" to return the ships and sailors.

But tensions have eased since then, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo assuring that the United States is not seeking a new Cold War and U.S. and Chinese trade officials swapping a lengthy list of items up for discussion. "The Russians behaved in a way that is deeply inconsistent with global law".

Peskov said that Putin and Trump greeted each other at some point on November 30, but there was no sign of anything but brief contact. It is not clear what the two leaders discussed.

Putin also said that he spoke about the matter with several foreign leaders at the G-20 summit.

Russian Federation claimed the ships it seized violated its territorial waters, but the strait is considered shared under a 2003 agreement.

European Council President Donald Tusk was more focused on the Ukraine crisis, saying he was "sure" the bloc would roll over its sanctions on Russian Federation next month.
