The date of holding the next meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump is not yet discussed, but it is likely to take place on May 9, 2020 if the US leader comes to Moscow, Kremlin Aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters on Monday, APA reports citing TASS.

"Now this issue is not being discussed in practical terms," Ushakov said answering a question on the date of a Putin-Trump possible meeting.

Ushakov recalled that the US side was considering an invitation for Trump to attend Victory Day celebrations in Moscow on May 9, 2020.

"We have not yet received confirmation from the US side, but we believe there is such a possibility and as Trump said, a lot depends on how the domestic political situation in the US unfolds given that the election campaign [in the US] will be gaining steam. Whether he could come depends on the wish of the [US] administration, on the readiness to devote two days to a flight to Moscow and participate in the event," Ushakov noted.
