Russia’s invasion of Ukraine an attack on security of Europe, global peace, says Biden

“And
we
agreed
it is
not
solely
an
assault
on
Ukraine,
it is
an
assault
on
the
safety
of
Europe
and
on
world
peace
and
stability,”
Biden
stated
in
the
Oval
Workplace
of
the
White
Home.

Earlier
in
the
day,
Biden
spoke
with
President
Andrzej
Duda
of
Poland
to
talk about
their
nations’ response,
and
these
of
allies,
to
Russia’s
invasion
of
Ukraine,
together with
ongoing
efforts
to
impose
extreme
penalties
on
Russia.

“Biden
underscored
the
United
States’
dedication
to
the
safety
of
Poland
and
all
of
our
NATO
Allies,”
White
Home
stated
in
a
assertion
of
the
name.
He
welcomed
Poland’s
partnership
in
internet hosting
9,000
US
forces,
together with
4,700
extra
service
members
deployed
there
in
current
weeks,
to
reassure
jap
flank
allies,
deter
Russian
aggression
in opposition to
NATO,
learn
the
assertion.

In
Brussels,
Secretary
of
State,
Antony
Blinken,
stated
the
US
has
despatched
an
extra
7,000
troops
to
Europe
and
repositioned
its
forces
already
on
the
continent
to
strengthen
NATO’s
jap
flank.

“We
proceed
to
tighten
our
extreme
financial
sanctions
on
Russia,” he
stated.
“Yesterday,
President
Putin
stated
his
so-called
‘particular
navy
operation’
is
continuing
precisely
as
deliberate.
“Properly,
it is
onerous
to
think about
that
his
plan
included
inspiring
the
Ukrainian
individuals
to
defend
their
nation
with
such
tenacity;
strengthening
the
resolve
and
solidarity
of
NATO
and
the
EU;
uniting
the
world
in
opposition
to
Moscow,
together with
141
nations
at
the
United
Nations,”
he
stated.

Blinken
continued
saying
that
the
Russian
invasion
has
apparently
come
to
unite
“an
unprecedented
quantity
of
worldwide
companies,
associations,
cultural
establishments
that
have
lower
ties
with
Russia”
and
induced
“the
Russian
financial system
to
go
into
freefall”.
He
stated
the
nation’s
monetary
state
has
motivated
tens
of
1000’s
of
Russians
to
protest
and
numerous
extra
to
depart
the
nation,
and
is
“more and more
turning
Russia
into
a
pariah
state.”

“If
that
was
President
Putin’s
plan,
effectively,
you
can
say
it is
working.
Russia
has
by no means
been
so
remoted;
we
have
by no means
been
extra
united,”
Blinken
stated.
Earlier,
Defence
Secretary
Lloyd
Austin
had
a
likelihood
to
communicate
with
the
Polish
Minister
of
Defence
Mariusz
Blaszczak
to
talk about
impacts
of
the
treasured
unprovoked
and
unjust
warfare
in opposition to
Ukraine,
his
spokesperson
John
Kirby
stated.
A
deconflation
line
has
been
positioned
between
the
US
and
Russia,
he
stated.

“It is
solely
been
in
place
for
a
couple
of
days,
I
suppose
since
early
this
week.
It
is
mainly
a
telephone
line,
a
telephone
connection
to
the
Russian
Ministry
of
Protection.
It
is
being
administered
out
of
European
Command
Headquarters,”
Kirby
stated
in
response
to
a
query.

“When
we
examined
it,
they
did
decide
up
the
different
finish.
And
they
acknowledged
that
they
bought
the
name.
So,
we
know
it
works.
We
suppose
once more,
this
is
as
we have
accomplished
earlier than,
like
in
Syria,
we
suppose
it is
useful
to
have
a
direct
communication
car
at
that
stage
at
an
operational
stage.
To
scale back
the
dangers
of
miscalculation,”
Kirby
stated.

“And
to
be
ready
to
talk
in
actual
time
if
want
be.
Significantly
as a result of
now
the
airspace
over
Ukraine
is
contested
by
each
Russian
and
Ukrainian
plane.
So
that
contested
airspace
now
buttress
is
proper
up
in opposition to
NATO.
So
good
factor
to
do.
And
we’re
glad
it is
in
place.
We’re
glad
that
the
Russians
have
acknowledged
that
they
will
use
it,”
he
added.
