Biden pledges support for Ukraine during Zelenskyy call amid Russia's attempted annexation

Source: Politico

President Joe Biden, during a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, reiterated on Tuesday the United States’ support for Ukraine amid Russia’s attempted annexation of its territory.

“President Biden also affirmed the continued readiness of the United States to impose severe costs on any individual, entity, or country that provides support to Russia’s purported annexation,” the White House said in a readout of the call, which Vice President Kamala Harris also participated in.

The phone call between the leaders comes just a few days after Russian President Vladimir Putin’s latest escalation of the war in Ukraine, when he announced four Ukrainian provinces would become Russian territory based on government-held sham referendums. Biden strongly condemned Putin’s move on Friday, just hours after the announcement, while also unveiling new sanctions on individuals and entities both inside and outside of Russia who provide political or economic support to the annexation attempt.

The Treasury, State and Commerce departments on Friday unleashed a raft of new sanctions to block the American assets of top Russian officials following Putin’s announcement. The measures join the slew of sanctions that the U.S. has already levied on Russia since it invaded Ukraine in an attempt to stymie its funding of the war.

1. Normal presidency, dirt on Trump never comes up in the call.

Help not conditional on political favors. Call log properly handled out in the open. Normal seems new when you return from Bizzaro World.

4. Totally agree!

 

We need to arm them to the teeth. The United States has some nice weapons. Time to provide them with what ever it takes to win this bloody war!
