President Joe Biden cast a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine in stark historical terms Tuesday, saying, “it would be the largest invasion since World War II," Report informs, citing foreign media.
“There will be enormous consequences if [Putin] were to go in and invade the entire country, or a lot less than that as well,” said Biden.
“For Russia, not only in terms of economic consequences and political consequences but enormous consequences worldwide,” he said.
“It’s a little bit like reading tea leaves,” said Biden. “Ordinarily, with a different leader, the fact that he continues to build forces along Ukraine’s border from Belarus all the way around, you’d say, ‘well, that looks like he’s going to do something.’”
Biden said he has no plans to send US troops to Ukraine.
