Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden, Putin Meet Via Video Conference Amid Ukraine Tensions” – below is their description.

President Joe Biden began a high-stakes call with Russian President Vladimir Putin seeking to ease tensions that have spiked over Russia’s massing of troops along the border with Ukraine and fears of a possible invasion.

Putin and Biden began their video call at 10:07 a.m. Washington time on Tuesday, according to the White House. Russian television showed the American president saying “good to see you again” and lamenting that the two leaders weren’t able to meet up at the Group of 20 meeting this year, which Putin skipped over Covid-19 concerns.

It’s the fourth direct conversation between the two leaders this year, following two calls and one summit in Geneva that was itself prompted by a Russian troop buildup near Ukraine.

This time, U.S. officials say their intelligence suggests Russia has drafted a plan for a military offensive against Ukraine as soon as early 2022 involving as many as 175,000 personnel along with armor, artillery and other equipment. U.S. intelligence has also detected an uptick in Russian propaganda targeting Ukraine, fueling speculation the Kremlin is readying an attack, according to a Biden administration official who requested anonymity to detail the intelligence assessments.
