The article  ..New York Times..informs  that Russian President Vladimir Putin is allegedly informing Western countries through intermediaries

 that he is ready to freeze the conflict in Ukraine along the current front line,.The statement  has caused a lot of noise. In general, articles of this type have become frequent in the American press, which undoubtedly expresses the intentions of Biden administration

The American Institute for the Study of War (ISW), referring to the New York Times article, wrote that Putin may seek a temporary ceasefire, which would be beneficial to Russia, for earning  time to prepare for a new aggression against Ukraine.

ISW analysts write that Putin's declaration of alleged interest in a ceasefire is more indicative of Russia's continued efforts to delay and block further Western military aid to Ukraine, as well as to mislead Western politicians into forcing Ukraine to negotiate with Russia.

Many American experts believe that behind the article are those who are trying to maintain an unofficial channel of negotiations with Moscow.

We are talking about the so-called "second track" negotiations, which include former American officials and diplomats.

The activities of this group are coordinated by Jake Sullivan, the US President's National Security Adviser, and CIA Director Burns, who are considered to be "lobbyists of the Russian line" in the Biden administration in terms of limiting military support to Ukraine and imposing peace on Kiev on Russia's terms.

The Sullivan-Burns tandem takes the line of delaying Russia's plans and Russia's presence in the region. The USA joined the Russian-Turkish deal on the abolition of Armenia's statehood.

The September 17 US-Russian-EU conference in Istanbul was a "second track" negotiation, during which the decision to occupy Artsakh and expel the indigenous majority was made, which was "legalized" in the special session of the UN Security Council on September 21.

If  Biden administration has at least apparently opposing views on the issue of Ukraine, there are no disagreements on the issue of Armenia.
