The conversation lasted 50 minutes. The initiative to hold the conversation on December 30 came from Vladimir Putin.
US President Joe Biden told his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that an invasion of Ukraine would lead to sanctions and an increased US presence in Europe due to the buildup of Russian military power on the Ukrainian border.
"I made clear to President Putin that if he makes any more moves, if he goes into Ukraine, we will have severe sanctions. We will increase our presence in Europe, with our NATO allies, and there will be a heavy price to pay for it," Biden said.
