According to a new report from CNBC “President Biden will warn Russian leader Vladimir Putin that the U.S. is prepared to impose severe economic countermeasures if Moscow carries out an attack on Ukraine.”
Per the report “the video call, which is set for Tuesday, will happen against a backdrop of amped-up tensions triggered in part by an alarming deployment of Russian troops and defense equipment along the country’s border with Ukraine.”
A Biden admin official told the network “These movements are consistent with the planning that we see underway for a military escalation in Ukraine.”
“We have had intensive discussions with our European partners about what we would do collectively in the event of a major Russian military escalation in Ukraine,” they added “We believe that we have a path forward that would involve substantial economic countermeasures by both Europe and the United States that would impose significant and severe economic harm on the Russian economy, should they choose to proceed.”
Texas Senator Ted Cruz tweeted “Russia is massing troops on Ukraine border BECAUSE Biden gave Putin Nord Stream 2 pipeline (allowing Russia to bypass Ukrainian pipelines).”
“Dems know this. They’ve said it repeatedly. We can stop #BidenPutinPipeline BUT for partisan reasons Dems are afraid to stand up to WH,” he added.
