White House on Reports of Secret US-Russia Talks: People Claim Lots of Things
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Monday declined to confirm media reports of the United States and Russia conducting behind-the-scenes talks on a potential solution to the Ukraine crisis.

"People claim a lot of things about conversations that the United States has or doesn't have. I don't have any specific conversations [between Washington and Moscow] to read out to you," Karine said during a press briefing.

On Sunday, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources, that US national security adviser Jake Sullivan has conducted confidential talks in recent weeks with Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov and Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev.

Commenting on the reports, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday that "Anglo-Saxon newspapers have been publishing numerous hoaxes."

Monument to Imperial Russian General Alexander Suvorov Vandalized in Odessa - Reports
Several unknown vandals have defaced a monument to General Alexander Suvorov that once served under the Russian Empire, in the Ukrainian city of Odessa by putting a noose around the statue's neck, Ukrainian news portal Strana reported on Monday.
Last week, vandals defaced the monument to Russian Empress Catherine II by putting a red cap on the head of the pedestal and putting a noose in its hand, which presumably symbolized that the empress, who founded Odesa in 1794, was an "executioner."
Mayor of Odessa Gennadiy Trukhanov said on Saturday that he supported the initiative to remove the historic monument to Catherine II. In late August, Trukhanov told Italian daily Corriere della Sera that he was against taking down the monument, stressing his concerns over mounting hate toward all things Russian.
