When Putin held a telephone conversation with US President Trump, the two sides congratulated each other on the 75th anniversary of the victory of the World Anti-Fascist War, emphasizing the historical significance of the alliance between the two countries in defeating fascism and uniting the people. Both sides emphasized that, based on this tradition, the two countries can reach consensus on many pressing issues. The two sides also talked about the current situation of the international crude oil market and believed that the oil reduction agreement reached by relevant countries under the cooperation of Russia and the United States was timely and played a practical role in stabilizing oil prices.

The two sides also gave positive comments on cooperation in combating epidemic disease and agreed to continue to strengthen coordination in this area. During the call, Trump also proposed to ship a batch of medical equipment to Russia.

Putin was also invited to talk with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the same day. The two sides discussed the epidemic situation and cooperated to fight the epidemic. Japanese media reported that in a half-hour call, the two people welcomed the cooperation in the manufacture and sale of virus detection kits by a Japanese-Russian joint venture. In addition, the two sides also reached agreement on the advancement of peace treaty negotiations and the development of joint economic activities in the four northern islands, known as Russia ’s southern Kuril Islands.

On the same day, Putin also talked with French President Macron, Kazakh President Tokayev, Uzbekistan President Milziyev and other leaders to exchange congratulations on the 75th anniversary of the victory of the anti-fascist war and exchanged views on cooperation to fight the epidemic. .
