MOSCOW - U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin have agreed to meet in a last- gutter politic trouble to help Moscow's irruption of Ukraine as heavy shelling continued Monday in a conflict in eastern Ukraine that fears could spark a Russian attack. 

French President Emmanuel Macron adjudicated a possible meeting between US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin in a series of phone calls that lasted late into the night. 

Macron said the two leaders had" accepted the principle of such a peak,"which would be followed by a broader peak that would also involve" other applicable stakeholders to bandy security and strategic stability in Europe."He added that the meeting"can only be held on condition that Russia doesn't attack Ukraine."


 White House press clerk Jen Psaki, said the administration has been clear that “ we are committed to pursuing tactfulness until the moment an irruption begins.” She noted that “ presently, Russia appears to be continuing medications for a full-scale assault on Ukraine veritably soon.” 

Macron’s office said thatU.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are set to lay the root for the peak when they meet Thursday. 


 It followed a flurry of calls by Macron to Putin, Biden and also British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. 

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said Monday that Putin and Biden could meet if they consider it necessary, but emphasized that “ it’s unseasonable to talk about specific plans for a peak.” 

 “The meeting is possible if the leaders consider it doable,” he said in a conference call with journalists. 

The prospective meeting offers new stopgap of preventing a Russian irruption thatU.S. officers said could begin any moment with an estimated Russian colors amassed near Ukraine. 

Adding to fears of an imminent irruption, Russia and its supporter Belarus blazoned Sunday that they were extending massive war games on Belarusian home that offers a accessible base for an attack on the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, located lower than 50 country miles south of the border with Belarus. 

Starting Thursday, shelling also spiked along the tense line of contact between Ukrainian forces and Russian- backed separatist revolutionists in Ukraine's eastern artificial heartland, Donbas, where over people have been killed since conflict erupted in 2014 shortly after Moscow's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula. 

Ukraine and the revolutionists have traded blame for massive check- fire violations with hundreds of explosions recorded daily. 

On Friday, separatist officers blazoned the evacuation of civilians and military rallying in the face of what they described as an imminent Ukrainian descent on the revolutionary regions. Ukrainian officers have explosively denied any plans to launch such an attack and described the evacuation order as part of Russian provocations intended to set the stage for an irruption. 

The separatist authorities said Monday that at least four civilians were killed by Ukrainian shelling over the once 24 hours and several others were injured. Ukraine’s service said two Ukrainian dogfaces were killed over the weekend, and another warrior was wounded Monday. 

Ukrainian military spokesperson Pavlo Kovalchyuk said the Ukrainian positions were shelled 80 times Sunday and eight times early Monday, noting that the secessionists were “ cynically firing from domestic areas using civilians as securities.” He claimed that Ukrainian forces were n’t returning fire. 

In the vill of Novognativka on the government- controlled side, 60- time-old Ekaterina Evseeva, said the shelling was worse than at the height of fighting beforehand in the conflict. 

“It’s worse than 2014,"she said, her voice pulsing. “ We're on the edge of nervous breakdowns. And there's nowhere to run.” 

Evseeva said that residers were squat down in basements amid the renewed fighting “ History I saw my neighbor with her 2-month-old as she was running to the basement. It should n’t be like this.” 

Moscow denies any plans to foray Ukraine, but wants Western guarantees that NATO wo n’t allow Ukraine and other former Soviet countries to join as members. It also urges the alliance to halt munitions deployments to Ukraine and roll back its forces from Eastern Europe — demands flatly rejected by the West. 

Russian officers have signed off Western calls to downsize by pulling back colors, arguing that Moscow is free to emplace colors and conduct drills wherever it likes on its home. Last week, Western officers dismissed Russian statements about some of the colors returning to their bases, saying that Moscow was actually beefing up its forces around Ukraine. 

AU.S. functionary said Sunday that Biden’s assertion last week that Putin has made the decision to roll Russian forces into Ukraine was grounded on intelligence that Russian front- line commanders have been given orders to begin final medications for an attack. The sanctioned spoke on condition of obscurity to describe the sensitive intelligence. 

Russia also upped the figure Saturday with sweeping nuclear drills that included multiple practice launches of multinational ballistic dumdums and voyage dumdums that Putin tête-à-tête oversaw. 

Ukraine's chairman reaffirmed his call for a quick meeting with Putin to help defuse pressures, but there was no response from the Kremlin. 

The European Union’s top diplomat, foreign policy chief Josep Borrell, ate the prospect of a Biden-Putin peak but said that should tactfulness fail the 27- nation bloc has perfected its package of warrants for use if Putin orders an irruption. 

“The work is done. We're ready,” said Borrell, who's chairing a meeting of EU foreign ministers and was assigned with drawing up a list of people in Russia to be hit with asset freezes and travel bans. He handed no details about who might be targeted. 

The European Commission has prepared other warrants to “ limit the access to fiscal requests for the Russian frugality and ( put) import controls that will stop the possibility for Russia to contemporize and diversify its frugality,” its chairman, Ursula von der Leyen, said over the weekend. 

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock ate Macron's peak action and advised Russia against any false flag action to provoke conflict. “ I appeal urgently to the Russian government, to the Russian chairman Do n’t play with mortal lives,” she said as she arrived at the EU top diplomats' meeting.
