On Tuesday, December 7, a video call took place between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Joseph Biden. The meeting comes at a difficult, yet interesting and eventful period in bilateral relations. In recent weeks, the Russian-American agenda has combined elements of tension and hostility with a glimmer of hope. On the one hand, Russia has faced accusations of seeking to escalate the situation in Ukraine, which have been accompanied by a major campaign in the American media and threats of new sanctions. On the other hand, some of the most recent signals contain potential solutions to the problems of the Russian-American dialogue, including in the field of arms control.
