President Joe Biden on Tuesday spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the White House said, and pledged that the U.S. would "act firmly in defense of its national interests" regarding Russian cyber intrusions and election interference. Biden also told Putin the U.S. is concerned with a sudden Russian military buildup in occupied Crimea and on Ukraine's borders. Biden proposed a summit meeting in a third country "in the coming months" to discuss the full range of U.S.-Russia issues, the White House said.
