Peskov announces condition for normalisation of Russia-US relations

As stated by the press secretary of Russia’s President, Dmitry Peskov, Washington needs to renounce hegemonism in order for Russian-American relations to normalise, RIA Novosti reports


According to Mr. Peskov, a change in Washington's foreign policy is the only way that can lead to normalisation of its relations with Moscow.

"The only solution is to renounce the policy of hegemonism in world affairs and to understand that Russia does not want, cannot and is not going to be anyone's vassal – in any sense of the word," he stressed. “When it matures that it is possible to talk with Russia only on the basis of mutual benefit and respect, then it will be time to plan further contacts.”

The presidents of Russia and the US, Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden, met in June 2021, and – as noted by Mr. Peskov – there are now virtually no contacts between the Kremlin and the White House.
