Don’t Invade Ukraine, Biden Warns Putin

Wilmington: United States President Joe Biden warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday that Russia will pay “a terrible price” and face devastating economic consequences if it invaded Ukraine.

Biden said the possibility of sending US ground combat troops to Ukraine in case of a Russian invasion was “never on the table,” though the US and NATO would need to send in more forces to eastern flank NATO countries for their defences.

“I made it absolutely clear to President Putin … that if he moves on Ukraine, the economic consequences for his economy are going to be devastating, devastating,” Biden was quoted as saying by news agency Reuters.

After having spoken with Putin for a couple of hours last week, Biden informed the reporters that he told the Russian leader clearly that Russia’s standing in the world would change “markedly” for an incursion into Ukraine.
