Saudi Arabia's state news agency reported few details about the call today, only saying the two leaders discussed bilateral relations and counterterrorism efforts.
Russia's state-run Tass news agency says the two discussed "the growing tensions around Qatar."
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties with Qatar last week, accusing it backing terrorism and promoting policies that destabilise the region. Qatar has denied the allegations.
Over the weekend, Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani was in Moscow following a telephone call between Putin and Qatar's ruling emir Sheikh Tamin bin Hamad Al Thani.
