U.S. Department of Defense (Pentagon) stated that U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin discussed the resumption of military communications between the two countries in a phone call with his Russian counterpart Andrei Belousov.

Pentagon spokesman Brigadier General Patrick Ryder explained - in remarks reported by US channel Alhurra on Tuesday - that Austin initiated the phone call, which was the first conversation between him and his Russian counterpart since March.

During their conversation, Defense Secretary emphasized to his Russian counterpart the importance of maintaining communication channels in light of the ongoing Russian war against Ukraine.
