White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki says that “going after the head of state would be a significant, horrific act by Russian leadership,” as Moscow closes in on Kyiv where Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is holed up.

Psaki says US President Joe Biden remains in contact with Zelesky, that the two had spoken earlier today and that the Ukrainian president plans on remaining in the country.
