Updated on

Russia is in a hurry to gain tangible results from the talks, according to Tatiana Stanovaya, founder of political consultancy R.Politik. For Putin, “everything depends on Biden” as the leader who will take Russian concerns seriously and the call aims to press the U.S. president “to give impetus to the negotiations,” she said.

The two sides are committed to entering 2022 with a rush of high-stakes diplomacy after Russia published draft security treaties following the first leaders’ call this month. U.S. and Russian negotiators will meet Jan. 10, two days before a NATO-Russia Council meeting. Top advisers to Putin and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz also plan to meet before the NATO-Russia talks.
