U.S. Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland arrived in Moscow on Monday for a three-day visit and will meet senior Russian officials.
Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov will receive Nuland at the president's office, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday. No meeting with President Vladimir Putin has been planned.
"After all, she is a guest of the Foreign Ministry, first of all vis-a-vis Mr. Ryabkov, with whom she will have the main talks," Peskov explained.
Sergey Ryabkov is the Russian deputy foreign minister.
The U.S. previously said Nuland would meet with high-ranking Russian officials and discuss several bilateral, regional and global issues.
