President Joe Biden sent the head of the CIA to Moscow this week to warn the Kremlin that the US is keeping tabs on their buildup of troops near the Ukranian border.

CIA Director Bill Burns made a rare trip to Russia to hold talks with their national security officials, who are directly involved in the troop buildup. 

An energy crisis in Ukraine has been the cause of the increased fervor between Kiev and Moscow, as Ukraine believes Russia is purposefully causing the problems.  

The United States is growing more and more concerned by the activity, multiple sources said, as the Biden administration tries to soothe tensions between Russia and Ukraine. 

Burns also spoke to Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky by phone, a senior State Department official told CNN.

A similar buildup in the spring did not lead to a return of the Russian invasions of Ukraine.
