BRUSSELS (AP) — World leaders are trying to walk a diplomatic tightrope that could mean the difference between war in Ukraine and an uneasy peace there as Russia’s menacing actions on the border of its neighbor continue unabated. Russian President Vladimir Putin is back at the Kremlin following his diplomatic foray to get support from China. Putin hosted Monday’s prime meeting of the day as French President Emmanuel Macron sought to de-escalate tensions. In Washington, U.S. President Joe Biden met with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to shore up Western resolve against what they see as Russian aggression. Germany and Britain, meanwhile, added to efforts to reinforce NATO’s eastern border, sending troops to Lithuania and Poland.
