Talks bid to stop Kosovo suffering
Six TV staff died in the first attack on the broadcast centre
The US envoy, Strobe Talbott, says he has had constructive talks with the Russians over Kosovo.
He said afterwards that differences remained, but they now understood each other very well.
He said earlier his talks with Mr Ivanov had been "extremely intense and constructive".
Reports say the Russians, who strongly oppose Nato air raids on Yugoslavia, are pushing for a peacekeeping operation made up of troops from several Eastern European countries.
Meanwhile, Nato is investigating why a US Apache attack helicopter crashed during a training exercise in Albania. The two crew were taken to hospital.
Last week, Mr Chernomyrdin tried to negotiate a peace deal with the Yugoslav President, Slobodan Milosevic.
BBC Moscow Correspondent Andrew Harding says Mr Talbot's objectives included:
HQ hit again
It appears that a cruise missile destroyed the transmitter on the roof. There were no reports of casualties.

Other Nato targets on Monday night, according to the Yugoslav media, were:
Army takes TV station
Mr Draskovic, whose party is affiliated to the station, described the move as undemocratic.
The International Committee of the Red Cross says it has been granted permission to resume operations in Kosovo.
Cornelio Sommaruga, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross, said President Milosevic had been "very positive" about the return of the ICRC during a meeting on Monday.
Hundreds of thousands of people are reported to be in desperate need of humanitarian aid there.
But Mr Sommaruga said the two sides still had to agree on how the Red Cross would operate there, and what safety guarantees it could be given.
The Red Cross pulled out of Kosovo after Nato air raids began on 24 March.
In a BBC interview, Mr Sommaruga also spoke of his shock at the impact of Nato air strikes on Yugoslavia.
The Red Cross president also visited three American soldiers taken prisoner by Yugoslav forces at the end of last month. A Red Cross doctor is due to visit them on Tuesday.
Japan, meanwhile, has pledged $185m in humanitarian assistance for Kosovo refugees, taking its whole commitment to $200m.
Chief government spokesman Hiromu Nonaka told a news conference that the magnitude of the refugee crisis had prompted the move.
"The problem of Kosovo refugees is the most serious currently facing the international community," he said.
