Phone call between Russian and US defense ministers: what they say about Ukraine

Focus on the future of the war in Ukraine. The question was asked during a phone call between the two Russian and American defense ministers. Sergei Shoigu and Lloyd Austin had a very delicate conversation that focused on international security issues. The situation in Ukraine was discussed during a telephone conversation between Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin. This was reported by Interfax citing the Russian Ministry of Defense. A statement reads “current international security issues, including the situation in Ukraine”. The importance of the phone call is evident if we consider that the last contact between the two dates back to May 13th, explains Tass.

But what did the exponents of the two superpowers say to each other? US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, during his telephone conversation with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, stressed “the importance of maintaining lines of communication during the ongoing war against Ukraine”. The indiscretion comes from Pentagon press secretary General Pat Ryder.
