The Australian and NZ dollars fell against their major counterparts in the Asian session on Monday, as risk sentiment dampened following a warning from the U.S. about an imminent invasion of Russia into Ukraine.

A telephonic conversation between U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin over the weekend failed to ease tensions, with Washington saying that there was "no fundamental change" to the worsening crisis.

Biden warned that the U.S. and its allies were prepared to respond "decisively and impose swift and severe costs" on Russia, if Putin launches an attack into Ukraine.

Russia said that the U.S. and NATO had failed to address its main security concerns, blaming the West of stoking hysteria over the Ukraine crisis.

German chancellor Olaf Scholz is traveling to Kyiv to find a diplomatic solution to the crisis. He will talk with Putin on Tuesday.

The aussie declined to 0.7111 against the greenback and 1.5944 against the euro, from its prior highs of 0.7150 and 1.5886, respectively. The next likely support for the aussie is seen around 0.70 against the greenback and 1.62 against the euro.
