Biden Agreed To Putin’s Request For Future Talks On Halting NATO Eastward Expansion: Kremlin

update(5:37pm): The Kremlin indicated there were no “breakthroughs” in the morning’s Biden-Putin virtual meeting, which lasted two hours, and focused on the brewing Ukraine crisis – which we noted is perhaps to a large degree a wholly manufactured crisis. However, there were “constructive” strides made. Crucially the two leaders agreed to initiate lower-level government-to-government talks on Russia’s “red lines” – according to the Kremlin.

The Russian side is also saying Biden agreed to discuss Putin’s proposal for legal guarantees preventing any further NATO expansion eastward. Here’s a further breakdown of official Kremlin states following the call, according to Bloomberg:

  • Leaders agreed to hold lower-level discussions soon on Russia’s “red lines”: no further expansion of NATO alliance or threatening weapons toward Russia; talks will also cover Putin’s proposal for binding security guarantees on that issue
  • “Putin said you Americans are worried by our battalions on Russian territory thousands of kilometers from the U.S., while we have genuine concerns about our security, Russia’s security.”
  • US agreed to let Russia inspect diplomatic facilities in US confiscated in recent years
  • Putin proposed that both sides “zero out” restrictions on diplomatic operations imposed in recent years
  • Putin told Biden that Russian forces on its own territory aren’t a threat to anyone
  • “Our president said sanctions aren’t a new thing, they’ve been used for a while and they don’t give any positive effect either for the U.S. or Russia” Leaders didn’t discuss the possibility of an in-person meeting
