US
President
Joe
Biden
has
mentioned

between

and
Kremlin
would
set off
World
War
III.

“We’re
going
to
proceed
to
stand
collectively
with
our
allies
in
Europe
and
ship
an
unmistakable
message.
We’ll
defend
each
single
inch
of
NATO
territory
with
the
full
may
of
the
United
States
and
galvanise
NATO.
We
will
not
battle
a
struggle
towards
Russia
in
Ukraine.
Direct
confrontation
between
NATO
and
Russia
is
World
War
III.
One thing
we
should
try
to
stop,”
Biden
informed
reporters
at
the
White
Home.

Biden
additionally
introduced
Friday
the
U.S.
will
dramatically
downgrade
its
commerce
standing
with
Russia
as
punishment
for
its
invasion
of
Ukraine
and
additionally
ban
imports
of
Russian
seafood,
alcohol
and
diamonds.

The
broad
commerce
shift,
which
revokes
the
“most
favoured
nation”
standing
for
Russia,
is
being
taken
in
coordination
with
the
European
Union
and
Group
of
Seven
nations.

“The
free
world
is
coming
collectively
to
confront
Putin,”
Biden
mentioned
from
the
Roosevelt
Room
of
the
White
Home.
Stripping
most
favoured
nation
standing
from
Russia
would
enable
the
U.S.
and
allies
to
impose
increased
tariffs
on
some
Russian
imports,
growing
the
isolation
of
the
Russian
financial system.
Biden’s
adjustments
on
Russia’s
commerce
standing
come
as
bipartisan
strain
has
been
constructing
in
Washington
to
revoke
what
is
formally
identified
as
“everlasting
regular
commerce
relations”
with
Russia.

Ukrainian
President
Volodymyr
Zelenskyy
pressed
the
U.S.
and
allies
to
take
the
motion
towards
Russia
in
remarks
to
Congress
over
the
weekend.
It
follows
days
after
the
Biden
moved
to
ban
imports
of
Russian
oil
and
gasoline
merchandise.
