Biden explained his position when imposing sanctions against Russia

Biden explained his position when imposing sanctions against Russia

US President Joe Biden said that he made the decision to impose anti-Russian sanctions, which provoked a crisis in the global fuel and food markets, as the supreme commander, and not as a politician thinking about elections. 

Biden told the AP news agency that he “calculated more like a commander-in-chief than a politician who cares about elections” due this fall.

“What happens if NATO’s strongest power….evades response to Russian aggression?” Biden said.

Biden says that without meeting a rebuff, Russia would allegedly continue to move deep into Europe, China would strengthen its plans to conquer Taiwan, and North Korea would more aggressively pursue its nuclear ambitions.
