Kremlin pours cold water on Ukraine peace summit plan

KYIV (AFP) – The Kremlin warned yesterday there are no concrete plans for a summit between the Russian and United States (US) leaders, as diplomats scrambled to head off the threat of a Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The idea of a meeting between presidents Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden has been championed by France and cautiously welcomed by Ukraine as a way to avert a catastrophic war in Europe.

But Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: “It’s premature to talk about any specific plans for organising any kind of summits” adding that no “concrete plans” had been put in place.
