New Delhi, 15 February 2022

As per news report of BBC, in a 40-minute call, Joe Biden and Boris Johnson agreed a deal was still possible despite a chorus of warnings of imminent Russian military action. Russia has always denied plans to invade Ukraine, despite massing more than 100,000 troops on the border. On Monday its foreign minister said diplomacy was "far from exhausted". More than a dozen nations have urged their citizens to leave Ukraine, and the US has said aerial bombardments could begin "at any time". But in their conversation, US President Joe Biden and UK PM Boris Johnson said there remained a "crucial window" for diplomacy and for Russia to step back from its threats towards Ukraine, according to a Downing Street statement.
