Kremlin: Putin, Kerry to Meet in Moscow on Wednesday

The Kremlin has confirmed that a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will take place in Moscow on March 23, the state-run TASS news agency reported Tuesday.

“A meeting between Kerry and Putin will indeed go ahead,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists, TASS reported.

“Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will brief the president on their contacts. A sufficiently broad scope of issues will certainly be brought up during the course of the talks, primarily on the pressing topics of Syria and Ukraine,” he added.

Regarding expectations for the upcoming meeting, Peskov advised that reporters address their questions to the Foreign Ministry.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
