“Now we have no dialogue with the Americans on the subject of the NVO, Ukraine, on any lines, except for the communication of representatives of the Foreign Ministry and the State Department with the US embassies in Moscow and Russia in Washington,” TASS quotes him.

According to Ryabkov, contacts have been reduced to the level of episodic phone calls.

Earlier, the Swiss publication Neue Zürcher Zeitung, citing high-ranking sources, reported that Burns, on behalf of US President Joe Biden, offered Kyiv to make territorial concessions in order to conclude a peace agreement with Russia, but these discussions were fruitless.

Later, the White House and the CIA denied reports that the CIA director offered to transfer 20% of Ukraine's territory to Russia to end the conflict.
