US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold talks via video conference on Tuesday, the Kremlin said, amid rising tensions over Ukraine.

This comes after US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said his country had evidence that Russia had drawn up plans for a “large-scale” attack on Ukraine.

He said it was not clear whether Putin had made a final decision to invade.

Russia denied any such intention, and accused Ukraine of massing its forces.
