Biden will talk to Zelenski this afternoon

US President Joe Biden will hold talks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky this afternoon, the White House said.

The call is scheduled for 10:45 a.m. local time in Washington “to discuss our continued support for Ukraine over Russian aggression.”

The call comes a day after Biden and other US officials voiced extreme caution over signals that Russia was reducing its military operations near Kyiv, suggesting they were waiting to see stronger signs of de-escalation before assessing Moscow’s intentions.

Biden said in the meantime, the United States would continue to “hold on tight to sanctions.”
