MOSCOW, January 27. /TASS/. Terminology used by Russia and the US describing the situation in Ukraine indicates serious differences of opinion but the sides are ready for a dialogue, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Wednesday.
"The phrases used reflect the position of the parties. Of course, a difference in description indicates serious differences of opinion in this regard. Yet the main thing is that there is readiness to continue the dialogue to discuss these differences," the spokesman said in response to a request to comment on a difference in terminology the Kremlin and the White House used to describe the subject of Ukraine touched upon in a phone conversation of Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Joe Biden.
The Kremlin used the phrase "intra-Ukrainian settlement," while White House Spokeswoman Jen Psaki, commenting on this conversation, mentioned strong support on the part of the US "for Ukraine's sovereignty in the face of Russia's ongoing aggression."
