MOSCOW (Sputnik) - US President Joe Biden on Sunday said that separate press conferences with Russia's Vladimir Putin in Geneva were not a matter of "contest."

Israel maintains a nuclear ambiguity strategy in which it neither confirms nor denies having nuclear weapons.

The Zelensky administration has recently raised hopes that Ukraine will be allowed to join NATO "as soon as possible" – just as Kiev received a $150-million military aid package from the US. But Paolo Raffone, a strategic analyst and director of the CIPI Foundation in Brussels, believes that Ukraine is hardly strategically important to the bloc.
