Biden Says Putin Will Pay a ‘Dear Price’ if Russia Invades Ukraine

President Biden said he expected President Vladimir Putin of Russia to invade Ukraine after more than 100,000 Russian troops amassed at the border over the past several months.

“I wanted to follow up on your answer there about Russia and Ukraine. When you were in Geneva in June, you said to us about President Putin, ‘I think the last thing he wants now is a Cold War.’ I’m wondering if you still think that the last thing he wants is a Cold War, and has your view of him changed in the past few months? And if it has and he does invade, would your posture be to really move back to the kind of containment policy that you saw so often when you were still in the Senate?” “The answer is that I think he still does not want a full-blown war, No. 1. No. 2, do I think he’ll test the West, test the United States and NATO as significantly as he can? Yes, I think he will, but I think he’ll pay a serious and dear price for it that he doesn’t think now will cost him what it’s going to cost him. And I think he will regret having done it.”
