WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden plans to communicate by telephone with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday amid an alarming Russian military buildup on its shared border with Ukraine.
The call, the second recognized dialogue between the 2 leaders this month, comes as Washington and European allies warn Moscow that invading its ex-Soviet neighbor will set off financial and political countermeasures.
“The Biden Administration continues to engage in extensive diplomacy with our European Allies and partners, consulting and coordinating on a common approach in response to Russia’s military build-up on the border with Ukraine,” nationwide safety council spokeswoman Emily Horne wrote in a press release Wednesday.
For months, Ukraine has warned Washington and European allies that 1000’s of Russian troops had been massing alongside its japanese border, a improvement that mimics Moscow’s 2014 invasion of Crimea. The annexation of the Black Sea peninsula sparked a global uproar and triggered a collection of sanctions on Moscow.
