On Thursday, President Biden spoke out about the Russian invasion on Ukraine.

 

On February 24th, 2022, Russia led a full on invasion of Ukraine. They sent multiple missiles towards Ukraine and attacked with hostility and force. U.S. President Joe Biden spoke out about this on Thursday. Joe Biden stated that this attack was premeditated, and that the attack has been planned for a long time.

 

President Biden says, “Vladimir Putin has been planning this for months.”

 

In retaliation, The President has decided to put new sanctions into effect. These sanctions will limit what exports can be sent to Russia. The President says that these new sanctions will be crucial and effective to Russia, effective immediately and over a period of time.

 

“We have purposely designed these sanctions to maximize a long-term impact on Russia and to minimize impact on the United States and our allies,” says Biden.

 

The Russian attack has been going on since 4:30 am in Ukraine territory. After sending a large amount of missiles towards Ukraine, the event is now the largest invasion on a European country since the invasions in World War II. The fight in Ukraine has potential to go on for a long period of time, and will be very costly and brutal to Ukrainians.

 

The NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg says, “This is a brutal act of war.”

 

No one can predict what will happen next, but the next few days will be chaotic. What does this mean for another World War? No one knows, but it could be possible.
