Despite the talk of diplomacy, the tone of the call was described by officials on both sides as “serious.”

US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday exchanged warning over ukraine but conveyed some optimism that diplomatic talks in January could ease spiraling tensions.

In a 50-minute call, their second conversation this month, Biden said he needed to see Russia decrease its military build-up near Ukraine, while Putin said sanctions threatened by Washington and allies could lead to a rupture in ties. The call was requested by Putin.
