An upcoming call between Putin and Biden… and Moscow talks about “lies of war”

The announcement of the Biden-Putin contact came after Washington said Russia had amassed enough troops near Ukraine for a full-scale invasion that would likely begin with an air assault.

According to the agency, Peskov said it was the United States that requested the contact.

The TASS news agency quoted Peskov as saying that Putin will also speak with French President Emmanuel Macron on the same day.

Meanwhile, the Russian Foreign Ministry said late on Friday that Western countries, with the help of the media, are spreading false information by suggesting that Moscow may be planning to invade Ukraine.

The ministry added, in a statement on its website, that Western countries are trying to distract attention from their aggressive actions.

And the White House said, on Friday, that the US President had a telephone conversation with leaders of allied countries, during which they expressed concern about Russia’s mobilization of its forces around Ukraine, and expressed their desire for a diplomatic solution to the crisis.

After the call, the White House added that the leaders “reaffirmed their support for Ukraine’s sovereignty.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Council President Charles Michel, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and others participated in the call.
