Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told President Joe Biden to "calm down the messaging" about the threat of a Russian invasion because it was stirring panic, CNN reported, citing an unnamed Ukrainian official.
Biden and Zelensky spoke by phone Thursday amid rising tensions between Russia — which is amassing tens of thousands of troops at Ukraine's border — Ukraine, the US, and NATO.
Biden told Zelensky on Thursday that a Russian invasion could happen as soon as February, when the ground freezes over, tweeted Emily Horne, White House National Security Council spokesperson.
However, Zelensky told Biden in the call that Ukraine did not agree with the US assessment, and that it was bringing panic that could later bring economic hardship to Ukraine, CNN reported, citing a senior Ukrainian official.
Zelensky also told Biden to "calm down the messaging," CNN reported, citing the official.
The White House did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
The official White House readout of Biden's call did not mention Zelensky's reported concern.
The official told CNN that the call "did not go well." The White House told the network that characterization was false and that anonymous sources were "leaking falsehoods."

The curs at Business Insider nipping at the Joek’s heels?
Call the holy Vindman Brothers to find out what’s really going on.
The jokes keep coming! LEAK FALSEHOODS?????
Big Pharma, Big Tech and the US Chamber of Commerce have all gotten their payoff from Biden - the ‘defense’ industry wants their’s now, too.
Besides, imagine how much easier it will be (than it already is) to suppress public dissent if there was a good ol war against Russia going.
According to Bob Gates, Secretary of Defense under Obama said in his book, Joe Biden has been wrong about every foreign policy issue for the last 40 years.
The difference now is Biden has real power to get people killed as POTUS, he got 13 Soldiers killed in Afghanistan, he could be causing thousands to get killed in Ukraine, all because these liberal nut jobs are trying to make Biden look tough before the 2022 midterm elections.
Biden NEEDS this war to happen, so he can get his polls back up. .......................
imagine how much easier it will be TO WIN IN NOVEMBER if there was a good ol war against Russia going.
It seems pretty obvious Biden is trying to draw attention away from his many domestic failures with his rhetoric about the Ukraine and Russia.
Joe’s popping off about Corn Popov...
What would happen if Trump held a press conference this afternoon?
The former Obozo White House staff is doing all it can to defer current internal problems they created for Biden.
“I want my war! Give it to me, now! I want it, I want it! C’mon man!!”
But Obama chose Biden as VP for his foreign policy expertise! Both of them are idiots!
He got a lot of civilians needlessly killed in Afghanistan too, including all the people the Taliban now have free reign to murder as they please.
Russia’s surface area ensures their oil and gas will outlast everyone else’s. Putin knows this. He knows Russian dominance is inevitable. So he has no desire to interfere with inevitability by creating excuse for war.
He wins by letting the status quo persist.
One might suspect Biden of knowing it, too, but his Green wackos would never allow this narrative to exist. They will persuade him oil and gas don’t matter.
So his motivation must be purely domestic politics.
Waiting for the renewed calls of ‘Trump Russia collusion’ if this was all just a setup to embarrass the eff out of this administration leading into midterms.
Also waiting to see if the NFL broadcasts CCP propaganda during SB ...
the ‘defense’ industry wants their’s now, too
Yep. The well’s gone dry in Afghanistan. No more $1B a WEEK to divy up. That $500M Ukraine got this year was a pittance. (Joe’s 10% was only $50M. Can’t live on that!!)
Gotta create another conflict for the crew.
Just like with the Russian collusion nonsense, the Biden regime is pushing a false narrative and creating a Russian boogeyman to achieve its agenda. In this case, its to give the media a story to distract the public from the Biden regime's failures and, likely, to pay off defense contractors that are producing weapons for Ukraine.
