US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Wednesday that Washington would pursue a diplomatic resolution with Russia as long as it could. Blinken’s visit to Europe comes after inconclusive stability talks with Russia last week, with fears of a Russian invasion in Ukraine continuing to grow.
President Biden on Wednesday said he expected President Vladimir Putin of Russia would invade Ukraine, delivering a grim assessment of the ability of the U.S. and its European allies to persuade the Russian leader not to send troops across the border.
President Biden predicted Russian President Vladimir Putin will “move in” to Ukraine, but hedged on the US response. The remarks immediately elicited shock from Ukrainian officials.
What people are saying?
2b Isolationism doesn’t work. We tried that in WW I. AND WWII. The world isn’t a bunch of independent nations as we would like to think. There are alliances and secret agreements etc. Ukraine, if for nothing else, has rich resources. Russia would love to have them.
Gaden Once again, a cowardly Democrat administration has telegraphed to our enemies that we surrender without a fight and will take no firm action in opposition to illegal extraterritorial actions. Think China building islands to force its will on all of Asia.
