Markarova will meet with Acting Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Philip Reeker. It is noted that the meeting will be held behind closed doors.

The meeting is scheduled for 19:00 Washington time (2 o'clock on Thursday night in Kyiv), i.e. it will take place after the end of the Biden-Putin summit.

The summit of the leaders of the United States and Russia will begin on Wednesday at 14:00 (Kyiv time) and will last 4-5 hours.
