Joe Biden Russia

Moscow, Feb 24: US President Joe Biden warned Russia as the Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “military operation” in Ukraine.

US President Joe Biden said that “Russia alone is responsible for the death & destruction this attack will bring. The US & its allies will respond in a united & decisive way. The world will hold Russia accountable.”

Putin made a surprise statement on television to declare his intentions and called on soldiers there to lay down their arms, defying Western outrage and global appeals not to launch a war.

On this US President Joe Biden further said that the “Prayers of the entire world are with the people of Ukraine tonight as they suffer an unprovoked & unjustified attack by Russian military forces. President Putin has chosen a premeditated war that will bring a catastrophic loss of life and human suffering.”

“I’ll be monitoring the situation from White House this evening & get regular updates from my national security team. Tomorrow, I’ll meet with my G7 counterparts in the morning… We’ll coordinate with our NATO allies,” Biden added.

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement came after the Kremlin said rebel leaders in eastern Ukraine had asked Moscow for military help against Kyiv.
