Biden warns Putin that Russia will suffer if it invades Ukraine


Biden told Putin that Russia would be diminished and would suffer a harsh Western response if they invaded Ukraine.

Biden warns Putin of serious consequences of Ukraine invasion

The White House provided PoliticusUSA with a readout of Biden’s call with Putin:

President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. today spoke with President Vladimir Putin of Russia about Russia’s growing military buildup on Ukraine’s borders. President Biden was clear that if Russia launches a new invasion of Ukraine, the United States, together with our allies and partners, will respond decisively, imposing swift and severe costs on Russia.

President Biden reiterated that a further Russian invasion of Ukraine would result in widespread human suffering and diminish Russia’s position. President Biden was clear with President Putin that while the United States remains prepared to engage in diplomacy, in full coordination with our allies and partners, we are equally prepared for other scenarios.

Russia is expected to start the invasion of Ukraine next week

PBS Newshour’s Nick Schifrin tweeted:

US warns Americans to leave Ukraine in 24-48 hours

National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan warned Americans to leave Ukraine:

National security adviser Jake Sullivan told Americans in Ukraine to leave because there would be no US military mission to get them out of the country if they decide to stay during a Russian invasion.

Biden and the West will ruin Russia if they invade Ukraine

The sanctions being discussed in retaliation against Russia for invading Ukraine appear to be crippling. The EU is talking about ripping out the heart of Russia’s financial and energy sectors.

In the US, there is talk of comprehensive and crippling sanctions against Russia, sanctions against individual Russian oligarchs, and even targeting Putin’s vast personal fortune.

Putin has been warned. If he invades the Ukraine, he risks overthrowing his entire regime. Biden is not Trump, and if Putin wants to test him, Biden will make him pay.
