“We must stop the aggressor as soon as possible.”

The White House said the leaders spoke for 30 minutes about mounting attacks on civilian locations, such as Tuesday’s bombing of Kiev’s main television tower near the Babi Yar Holocaust memorial, a ravine where more than 30,000 Jews They were killed by the Nazis during World War II.

The tragedy is commemorated with a statue at the site, where many Jews now make pilgrimages.

Five people were killed in the shelling and Ukrainian officials accused Moscow of threatening the monument.

The phone conversation comes as Ukraine faces a major military offensive from Russia, which appears to have intensified its assault on the capital Kiev and the second Kharkiv.

“President Biden underscored continued United States assistance to Ukraine, including security assistance shipments, economic support, and humanitarian aid,” the White House reported.
