The meeting scheduled is fixed between Russian and the United States to discuss various geopolitical issues and resolve the conflicts between both the countries. Both the countries are all set to meet on January 10, 2022. The meeting will be held in Geneva, and they are going to meet personally with each other.
More importantly, the meeting will be held during the buildup of the Russian military on the borders of Ukraine and ongoing tension between Russia and the United States.
Russia was trying to invade Ukraine and was in complete preparation, but the United States and NATO raised their voices against it and showed their concern for Ukraine.
While denying the attempt of invading, Moscow has allegedly rejected all the allegations and said that their country has all rights to relocate their military and troops within the territory under their control and discretion.
On the other hand, the military activity of NATO near the borders of Russian can be dangerous for the security of Russia.
