Washington: US President Joe Biden on Tuesday warned Russia of dire consequences if it tried to enter Ukraine. “I have already made it clear to President Vladimir Putin that if Russia decides to enter Ukraine, it will face dire consequences, including severe economic sanctions,” the US president said. Not only this, I will also not hesitate to increase the presence of US forces and NATO in the eastern region (Poland, romania, etc).
Biden had a meeting with his national security team on Tuesday morning. “There has been no change in the deployment of Russian forces. Russian troops are present along the entire border of Belarus.’ Biden clarified that the US has no plans to send its troops or NATO forces to Ukraine. “But I have already said that if Russian forces enter Ukraine, it will have serious economic consequences,” he insisted.
America’s claim of aggressive action on the border
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters there are 100,000 Russian troops on the border who are trying to spread propaganda around the world through war-provoking rhetoric and actions to set the stage for an attack on Ukraine. “We will prioritize diplomatic efforts, but we don’t know what’s going through President Putin’s mind,” Saki said. We have seen aggressive action and preparedness along the border.
Emphasis on reducing stress
Saki welcomed any attempt to de-escalate tensions in the region. “We are in contact with many of our allies and partners regarding the Ukraine crisis,” he said. However, I have nothing to clarify on discussions with Indian officials. We welcome every effort to reduce tension in the region.
