Joe Biden Gives New Warning to Russia Against Invasion of Ukraine

United States — US President Joe Biden said Thursday that any movement of Russian colors across the Ukrainian border would constitute an irruption and that Moscow would" pay a heavy price"for similar action. 


 It was the White House's rearmost attempt to clear up commentary Biden made the day ahead when he suggested that a" minor irruption"by Russia into Ukrainian home could affect in a more measured response by the United States and its abettors. 

 Facing a deluge of review from Democratic lawgivers and Ukrainian officers that Biden's commentary had invited limited military action by Russian President Vladimir Putin, Biden sought to clarify his reflections at the launch of a White House meeting concentrated on domestic policy. 


"I have been veritably clear with President Putin,"Biden said. “ He has no misreading Any assembled Russian unit moving across the Ukrainian border, that's an irruption,” Biden said, adding that an irruption would be met with a “ severe and coordinated profitable response.” 

His commentary came as US Secretary of State Antony Blinken prepares to meet Friday in Geneva with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in a high- stakes trouble to defuse pressures that looks set to fail. 


 Biden said theU.S. was preparing for Russia to take action that fell outside the parameters of conventional warfare. 

“ Russia has a long history of using measures other than overt military action to carry out aggression — civil tactics, so- called argentine zone attacks and conduct by Russian dogfaces not wearing Russian uniforms,” he said. 


 On Wednesday, Biden said he thinks Moscow will foray and advised Putin that Russia would pay a “ dear price” in lives lost and a possible arrestment from the global banking system if it does. 

But Biden also urged consternation among abettors by saying the response to a Russian irruption “ depends on what it does.” 


 “ It's one thing if it's a minor irruption and also we end up having a fight about what to do and not do, et cetera,” he said. 

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was among those expressing concern. 


 “ We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor irruptions and small nations. Just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved bones,” he twittered. 

Before traveling to Geneva, Blinken advised in Berlin that there would be a “ nippy, severe” response from the United States and its abettors if Russia transferred any military forces into Ukraine. 


 Still, that will be met with a nippy, severe, “ If any Russian military forces move across the Ukrainian border and commit new acts of aggression against Ukraine. 

 Latterly, Blinken indicted Russia of hanging the foundations of world order with its buildup of an estimated colors near Ukraine. 


 Russia must face a combined and severe global response if it invades, he said in a speech in Berlin, the megacity that represented the Cold War resolve between East and West. 

“ These are delicate issues we're facing, and resolving them will not be snappily,” Blinken said. “ I clearly do not anticipate we'll break them in Geneva hereafter.” 


 He latterly told an followership at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Lores that Russia's conduct toward Ukraine are an attempt to lessen transnational morals and just the rearmost in a series of violations of multitudinous covenants, agreements and other commitments Moscow has made to admire the sovereignty and home of other countries. 

“ Maybe no place in the world endured the divisions of the Cold War further than this megacity,” Blinken said. “ Then, President Kennedy declared all free people citizens of Berlin. Then, President Reagan promptedMr. Gorbachev to tear down that wall. It seems at times that President Putin wants to return to that period. We hope not."


 Blinken met before with top diplomats from Britain, France and Germany to project a united front over enterprises that Russia may be planning to foray Ukraine. He met Ukraine's chairman in Kyiv a day before. 

Blinken took pains Thursday to stress theU.S. and its mates were united, noting that American diplomats have held further than 100 meetings with abettors in recent weeks “ to insure that we're speaking and acting together with one voice when it comes to Russia.” 


 “ That concinnity gives us strength, a strength I might add that Russia doesn't and can not match,” he said. “ It's why we make voluntary alliances and hookups in the first place. It's also why Russia recklessly seeks to divide us."

In Washington, the Biden administration blazoned Thursday it has levied new warrants against four Ukrainian officers who administration officers say are part of a Russian influence trouble to set the rationale for an irruption. The warrants name congress members Taras Kozak and By Voloshyn and two former government officers. All four have been privately involved in intimation sweats by Russia's civil security service, known as the FSB, according to Treasury. 


 Russia denies it's planning an irruption and, in turn, indicted the West of conniving “ provocations” in Ukraine, citing the delivery of munitions to the country by British military transports in recent days. 

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova contended Ukrainian and Western talk of an imminent Russian attack was a “ cover for carrying large-scale provocations of their own, including those of military character.” 


 Russia wants binding security guarantees, including a endless prohibition on Ukrainian class in NATO, to which Kyiv aspires, and the junking of utmost of theU.S. and confederated military presence in eastern Europe. 

TheU.S. and its European mates say they're willing to consider certain less-dramatic gestures but that the Russian demands are out of the question and that Putin knows they're nonstarters. That, Blinken said, is evidence of Putin's ulterior motive. 


 “ So far, our good- faith gestures have been rebuffed-- because, in verity, this extremity isn't primarily about munitions or military bases,” he said. “ It's about the sovereignty and tone- determination of Ukraine and otherpost-Soviet countries. And at its core, it's
