In a feeble attempt at intimidating Vladimir Putin, Biden warns that it would be very, VERY bad if Russia takes military action in Ukraine. Biden stated that it would be a “grave mistake” and there would be “consequences.”
So what could these consequences possibly be? Economic sanctions, diplomatic isolation, and support for the Ukrainian military are all on the table. However, Putin is unlikely to back down in the face of Biden’s threats. He has already shown that he is willing to risk international condemnation and economic sanctions.
Only time will tell if Biden’s warning was enough to discourage Putin from invading Ukraine. However, it is doubtful that anything Biden says will dissuade the Russian president from his course of action.
Watch Biden’s discuss Russian aggression below and let us know what you think.
