Biden To Hold Call With Russia's Putin Today

Andrew H. Sweet

A senior U.S. administration official, speaking to reporters on condition of anonymity on Wednesday, said Biden would tell Putin in their phone call that the U.S. was "prepared for diplomacy and for a diplomatic path forward."

"But we are also prepared to respond if Russia advances with a further invasion of Ukraine," Biden will tell Putin, the official said, adding that "we continue to be gravely concerned" by Russian forces near the Ukrainian border.

During the past several weeks, senior U.S. officials have urged Russia not to take "aggressive" moves against Ukraine, saying Washington and its allies were prepared to impose harsh economic measures against Moscow should it invade.
