The United States and Russia have agreed in principle to a summit between US President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

On Sunday, Macron spoke with Biden and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky. According to France’s Elysee, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov will prepare for the summit on February 24.

The French government and the White House insist that the summit, which has not yet been scheduled, will take place only if Russia does not occupy Ukraine in the preceding period. The U.S. government responded Monday morning by saying that if Russia chose to go to war, the United States would be ready to take more immediate and drastic action. The White House says Biden will use the G7 summit’s virtual summit on Thursday to discuss the situation in Russia and Ukraine.
