Biden Strengthens Warning to Russia on Potential Ukraine Attack
President Biden said any movement of Russian forces across Ukraine’s border would be considered an invasion and met with a severe response by the U.S. and its allies. Mr. Biden’s warning came a day after he triggered alarm in Europe by suggesting there was division among allies.
I’ve been absolutely clear with President Putin. He has no misunderstanding — if any, any assembled Russian units move across Ukrainian border that is an invasion. But it would be met with severe and coordinated economic response that I’ve discussed in detail with our allies, as well as laid out very clearly for President Putin. But there is no doubt — let there be no doubt at all — that if Putin makes this choice, Russia will pay a heavy price. It is also not the only scenario we need to be prepared for. Russia has a long history of using measures other than overt military action to carry out aggression and paramilitary tactics, so-called gray zone attacks and actions by Russian soldiers not wearing Russian uniforms. Remember when they moved to the Donbas, the little green men, they were, they were dealing with those who were Russian sympathizers and said that Russia had no nobody in there. Well, that includes little green men in uniforms as well as cyberattack. We have to be ready to respond to these as well and decisive in a united way with a range of tools at our disposal. The Ukrainian foreign minister said this morning that he’s confident of our support and resolve, and he has a right to be.
