President also announced an upcoming speech on Ukraine Thursday

President Biden condemned Russian President Vladimir Putin after the country carried out military operations in Ukraine Wednesday evening (Thursday morning local time).

“The world will hold Russia accountable,” Biden said in a pair of tweets Wednesday, moments after Russia carried out the military action.

“President Putin’s actions demand a firm response. That’s why we’re imposing full blocking sanctions on VEB and Russia’s military bank, cutting off Russia from western financing, imposing sanctions on elites, and more,” Biden added in another tweet. “We will continue to escalate sanctions if Russia escalates.”

The U.S. president also called on international allies to respond.

“Russia alone is responsible for the death and destruction this attack will bring, and the United States and its Allies and partners will respond in a united and decisive way,” he added.

In a separate statement, Biden described the attack as “unprovoked and unjustified.”

“The prayers of the entire world are with the people of Ukraine tonight as they suffer an unprovoked and unjustified attack by Russian military forces,” Biden said via the White House.

“I will be monitoring the situation from the White House this evening and will continue to get regular updates from my national security team,” he added. “Tomorrow, I will meet with my G7 counterparts in the morning and then speak to the American people to announce the further consequences the United States and our Allies and partners will impose on Russia for this needless act of aggression against Ukraine and global peace and security. We will also coordinate with our NATO Allies to ensure a strong, united response that deters any aggression against the Alliance.”

  1. Putin senses weakness and told us exactly what he was going to do and our leaders failed us again. Now good and innocent people will die and our leaders will be pointing their fingers at everyone but Putin. Why the hell do we have a military for?
    For gender studies programs?
    To deliver water after earthquakes?
    To round up Truckers ?
    To administer vaccines for fired nurses?
    For fucking parades?
    Why not train our militaries to fight evil? If we can’t have a freedom loving president can we please have a freedom loving military?
    Fuck Putin…
    Fuck Putin…..
    Fuck Putin…..

    Slava Ukraini!!!

  2. I’m lifting Ukraine in prayer. If you are believer, prayer is the most effective thing you can do.

    I tire of Biden’s tough speeches. he is doing little to help a situation his weakness allowed.

    • Prayers are working but we will still need some help. God knows what will happen if the world looses such a wonderful country to a pack of monkey but I don’t know if the G7/EU/NATO leaders understand it.

What is your opinion?
