President Joe Biden forcefully condemned Russian President Vladimir Putin’s pre-dawn invasion of Ukraine on Thursday, calling it a premeditated attack and a brutal assault “without provocation, without justification, without necessity.”
“Vladimir Putin has been planning this for months,” he said.
Biden announced new sanctions that include banning what can be exported to Russia, which he said would be a “severe cost” to the Russian economy, “both immediately and over time.”
“We have purposely designed these sanctions to maximize a long-term impact on Russia and to minimize impact on the United States and our allies.”
The president met Thursday morning with his national security team and world leaders, hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the attack on Ukraine in the predawn darkness.
