US: Now not the time for Russia-Ukraine talks

Now is not the right time for the resumption of peace negotiations between Russia and Ukraine, United States National Security Council's Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby (pictured) told Fox News on Sunday.

The US will "continue to make sure" that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky "can succeed on the battlefield so that he can succeed at the [negotiating] table," Kirby noted, adding that the Russian government does not seem "interested" in peace talks.

However, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said earlier in the day that Moscow has "no doubt that sooner or later common sense will prevail" and that negotiations will restart even though "Western countries are betting on the continuation of the war."
