US President Joe Biden has re-warned Russia that they will retaliate if it attacks Ukraine.
He made the pledge in a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Sunday (January 2).
Biden held an online meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin last week amid tensions with Russia over a Russian military gathering on the Ukrainian border. A few days later, the US President had a telephone conversation with the President of Ukraine.
Although Russia welcomed the telephone conversation, the Putin administration warned that it would respond "appropriately" if sanctions were imposed on Moscow.
