U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley spoke by phone with top Russian military officer, Chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov, on Tuesday amid growing tensions between the nations over Ukraine.
Article by Isabel Van Brugen from our premium news partners at The Epoch Times.
According to a readout of the call released by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the pair discussed “discussed several security-related issues of concern.”
The phone call is “a continuation of communication between both leaders to ensure risk reduction and operational de-confliction,” it states.
“In accordance with past practice, both have agreed to keep the specific details of their conversation private,” the readout notes.
The Russian Defense Ministry said in a separate statement that they “discussed the ongoing issues of international security,” without elaborating.
It comes amid escalating tensions between Moscow and Washington over reports of a troop build-up at Ukraine’s border, with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken suggesting earlier this month that Russia may be “attempting to rehash” its 2014 invasion of Ukraine.
The United States is “concerned by reports of unusual Russian military activity,” Blinken said, referring to claims made by Ukraine’s Defense Ministry this month that about 90,000 Russian troops are stationed close to its border with Russia.

Blinken said the situation is been monitored “very closely.”
Russia has accused the West of flaring tensions over the matter.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday that Western media reports of plans by Russia to invade Ukraine are an “empty and groundless” escalation of tensions, Russia’s state-run news agency TASS reported.
His remarks came after CNN, citing unnamed sources, reported that the Biden administration is considering providing more weapons to Ukraine’s armed forces, including Javelin anti-tank missiles and stinger air defense missiles, in preparation for a possible Russian invasion.
Russia’s deputy U.N. ambassador Dmitry Polyanskiy made similar remarks earlier this month after several unnamed sources told Bloomberg that U.S. officials have briefed their EU allies on their concerns of a potential military operation by Russia in Ukraine.
Russia has never planned on invading Ukraine, and won’t do so “unless provoked,” Polyanskiy said when pressed on the issue. “Never planned, never did.”
“Never going to do it unless we’re provoked by Ukraine, or by somebody else,” or if Russia’s national sovereignty is threatened, he added.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Monday that the Biden administration had “serious concerns” over Russia’s military presence on Ukraine’s border.

The administration has called on “Moscow to de-escalate tensions” she said.
Since 2014, Ukraine and Russian-backed separatists have been fighting in eastern Ukraine after Russia illegally invaded and annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula.
The Epoch Times has contacted the Biden administration for comment.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
