Putin says Russian and US envoys will be returned
Good sign from talks
- Foreign departments to start talks on diplomatic track
- Ukraine was discussed but there's nothing to discuss on Ukraine's entry to NATO
- Putin said trade, arctic and strategic nuclear capability were discussed
This was billed as a set of talks aimed at starting deeper talks and this certainly looks like a successful step. Ambassadors will be returned to national capitals.
The ruble is threatening a two-day high.
