Biden huddling with European leaders on Russia's military buildup on Ukraine border

President Biden will meet virtually with European leaders on Monday afternoon to discuss the buildup of Russian troops at Ukraine's border, as the U.S. reportedly prepares to send additional troops to the region.

The secure video call, set for 3 p.m., is "part of our close consultation and coordination with our Transatlantic Allies and partners in response to Russia's military buildup on Ukraine's borders," the White House said in a statement.

The call will include European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Council President Charles Michel, French President Emmanuel Macron, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. Additionally, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, and President Andrzej Duda of Poland will be on the call.

The call will take place in the Situation Room at the White House and will not be open to the press.

1. Identify specific military units to send to Eastern EU, Prep & Deploy

Biden administration now in final stages of identifying specific military units to send to Eastern Europe to deter Russia.
Next steps likely to be prep orders and then deployment orders once final decision
several US officials tell CNN.

*From the Comments to Starr's statement:
"At this point this is triage. Were trying to deter a misadventure by the Russians in the Baltics."

"I know Ukraine well ! These are decent and dignified people who's dreams are to be in the EU !
Its too late for Putin to turn the clocks back ! 45 million ppl westernised are not going to be little soviets
We must put a military presence or face a bloodbath

"Its a signal, both to RU and NATO.
Needed after Trump signaled willingness to bow down to RU and abandon NATO. Stakes being raised for RU."

Putin couldn't have suuccessfully plotted his move on Ukraine without first kneecapping NATO's powerful US alliance force.
Putin seated Trump in the position of power to weaken the US & bulldoze his way thru the Baltics.

Trump failed
