Biden Offers Prayers As Putin Attacks Ukraine, Threatens West

“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,” Joe Biden said Wednesday night in a statement responding to news that Russian President Vladimir Putin gave the green light to invade Ukraine.

Biden continued:

“President Putin has chosen a premeditated war that will bring a catastrophic loss of life and human suffering. 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. The world will hold Russia accountable.

“I will be monitoring the situation from the White House this evening and will continue to get regular updates from my national security team. 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. Tonight, Jill and I are praying for the brave and proud people of Ukraine.”

Biden later added:

According to the Fox report, Putin gave a green light to the operation, then claimed that Nazi nationalists are oppressing the people of Ukraine.

“I’ve made the decision to conduct a special military operation,” Putin said in an address Wednesday. “Our analysis has concluded that our confrontation with these [Ukrainian] forces in inevitable.”  He went on to threaten the rest of the world.

“A couple of words for those who would be tempted to intervene. Russia will respond immediately and you will have consequences that you never have had before in your history,” he added.

This is a developing situation.  Stay tuned…
