Biden: Any country that supports Putin will be tainted by association, says Biden, in remarks aimed at India, Pakistan - Times of India


Warning that any country that backed Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine would be “tainted by the federation”, US President Joe Biden on Thursday called for “crippling sanctions and other economic measures” for crippling the Russians. Destructive package”.

The sanctions include freezing the assets of four major Russian banks, including VTB, which Biden said is worth more than $250 billion in the US.

Biden announced sanctions and punitive economic measures after calling his National Security Council meeting in a White House speech, saying, “Putin is the aggressor… he chose war… and now he has to face the consequences.” And the G7 leader earlier in the day.

Accusing him of “naked aggression” against Ukraine in pursuit of his dream of a Russian empire, Biden said the Russian leader had chosen the war without reason and that he would ultimately be defeated due to massive civil disobedience and a strategic end. The United States, he said, will stand by Ukraine and defend it less than putting shoes on the ground.

Biden said, “America stands for threats and freedom. This is us.” He also announced the deployment of more US troops who were on standby for Germany,

Biden also gave advice to countries supporting Russia. He said the United States would make Putin a “pariah” and that any country that supported him would be tainted by his union.

The warning would be particularly dire for Pakistan, whose leader Imran Khan was in Moscow while Putin launched an invasion of Ukraine. Asked if India was on the same page as the US on the situation in Ukraine, Biden said, “We are talking with India today, it is not fully resolved yet…”

New Delhi has so far chosen a cautious middle path.
Washington and its Western allies intensified sanctions and bolstered the defense of the NATO frontline on Thursday after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine plunged Europe into its most severe crisis since World War II.

Facing an offensive under a nuclear cover, Biden mobilized NATO allies, G7 partners, and domestic opinion to crack down on Putin, when Moscow lifted the first round of sanctions to proceed with the long-predicted offensive. closed – what Russia called the “special military”. Action” – of Ukraine.
The US President acknowledged that the first round of sanctions was ineffective and that it would take time to cut the sanctions. He said, “Nobody expected that sanctions would stop anything from happening. It can take time, and we have to show resolve so that they know what’s going on and so the people of Russia know they’re going to hit them.” What have you brought,” he said.

Biden also gave advice to countries supporting Russia. The United States would make Putin a “pariah” and any country that supported him would be stigmatized by his union.
In pre-invasion remarks, Putin explicitly called for a nuclear response if the US and its allies intervened.

“Whoever tries to disrupt us, creating danger to our country and its people, should know that the Russian response will be immediate and will lead to consequences that you have never seen in history.” “All relevant decisions have been taken. I hope you will hear me,” Putin said in a televised address.
In New York, the United Nations also came down on Russia, with its Secretary-General Antonio Guterres calling the invasion “the saddest moment of my tenure” while appealing to Putin, “In the name of humanity, please bring your forces back to Russia.” Putin’s announcement of “special military action” in Ukraine came as the United Nations was discussing earlier steps in Moscow’s Donbass region.
In one of the most vivid moments in geopolitical television history, Ukraine’s ambassador to the United Nations, Sergei Kislitsia, addressed directly to his Russian counterpart Vasily Nebenzya, who was presiding over the session, calling on him to leave his chair, And called Putin and Lavrov. Foreign Minister of Russia) “Ask them to stop aggression on my people”.
“There is no purification for war criminals, ambassadors … they go straight to hell,” he said to the Russian chair. Envoys from the US and UK were later seen comforting an emotional envoy from Ukraine.
Earlier, President Biden accused Putin of choosing a “pre-planned war” that he predicted would bring a catastrophic loss of life and human suffering.
“Russia alone is responsible for the death and destruction caused by this attack, and the United States and its allies and allies will respond in a united and decisive manner. The world will hold Russia accountable,” Biden said in his late night address.

In the morning, Biden convened an in-person meeting of his National Security Council in the White House status room, followed by a virtual meeting of G7 leaders to consider the Western response to Putin’s move, which surprisingly saw some among the right wing. is support. Trump camps that argue that there are no stakes in a fight for America that is predominantly European, and that Washington should focus on its southern borders and its internal problems.

Trump actually called Putin “smart” “sensible” and a “genius” for his move to Ukraine, while claiming with typical bombshell that it would never have happened on his watch.
Trump’s critics believe that will not happen, simply because he would have gifted Ukraine and handed it to Putin. Others even went to Barack Obama to explain Washington’s timid response, which some attributed to Washington’s damage in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The alternative narrative is that successive US presidents allowed Atlantic militarists in the US establishment to push NATO to Russia’s doorstep, which Putin felt. Trump’s British surrogate Nigel Farage actually tweeted that Putin’s invasion of Ukraine was “the result of EU and NATO expansion, which came to a head in 2014. There was no point in hitting a Russian bear with a stick”.
Before increasing sanctions, the US and its allies were expected to deter a full-scale invasion, opting for incremental measures following the initial Russian incursion into Ukraine.

Some experts said it was tantamount to “bringing a pea-shooter into a gunfight” and argued that it encouraged Putin to go all in.
US officials defended the approach. “We are not cowboys who are imposing arbitrary and mind-boggling restrictions on the rest of the world.” President Biden’s point man on the sanctions, said Dalip Singh, explaining that the US was following a set of guiding principles with regard to sanctions, which he promised would ultimately hurt Moscow.
