Tensions between Ukraine and Russia continue to grow ahead of US President Joe Biden’s planned video conference with counterpart Vladimir Putin on Tuesday amid ongoing Russian troop build-up on the Ukrainian border. Russia has denied a new assault on Ukraine and warned against any NATO military expansion in Ukraine.
President Biden spoke with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia Tuesday morning to de-escalate a crisis over Ukraine as tens of thousands of Russian troops amass along the Ukrainian border, raising fears of an invasion.
Biden voiced the deep concerns of the United States and our European Allies about Russia’s escalation of forces surrounding Ukraine and made clear that the U.S. and our Allies would respond with strong economic and other measures in the event of military escalation.
