Biden agrees Putin is a killer: what's next

"Do you think Putin is a killer?" "I do," such a brief dialogue between ABC journalist George Stefanopoulos and US President Joe Biden, as expected, became a hit in both Ukraine and the United States.

In fact, the story continued: White House spokeswoman Jane Psaki said the president didn't regret the words and preferred to tell the truth about Putin.

The United States supports Ukraine and promises to oppose the Kremlin

Now Joe Biden's team has made a loud announcement: it will oppose the Kremlin's hostile actions. "President Biden has made it clear that the United States will respond to many of Russia's destabilizing actions," White House spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki assured.

It's significant for us that among these answers, there's definitely the support of Ukraine (after all, who else is at war with Russia?). "The United States will not leave Ukraine alone [in the event of Russian aggression]," US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin promised.

And in general, the United States is responsive to the withdrawal of Russian troops to the borders of Ukraine. Joe Biden did call President Zelenskyi. They were talking about the Russian threat in the first place, and the US military in Europe declared full combat alert (a kind of signal that the United States sees everything).

Ніякі есмінці вже не заходять у Чорне море. Баден здав назад.


Дякую за коментар.

Справді, вже після здачі статті у верстку США дійсно повідомили турків про те, що кораблі не пройдуть.

Однак якою мірою це означає, що Байден здав назад? Питання дискусійне. Байден показав, що може відправити до українських берегів військові кораблі, Росія пішла на перемовини... чим не спосіб схилити Путіна до деескалації обіцянками перемовлятися? Зрештою, ці кораблі і так ішли для того, аби показати підтримку США, а не обстрілювати російські бази "Томагавками". Ну, і показали.
