Biden: “If Putin takes Ukraine, he won’t stop there”

The war in Ukraine

Published 9 December 2023

Joe Biden continues his high tone against Russia.

If Russia prevails in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, the country could find itself in a situation where Russia launches an attack on NATO, which in turn could trigger a global conflict with US troops. This is what US President Joe Biden said on Wednesday during a vote in Congress on additional aid to Ukraine.

Biden also attacked Republicans – who are reluctant to support Democrats because of disputes over the security of the US southern border – saying they were “ready to give (Russian president Vladimir) Putin the biggest gift he could hope for”.

The 81-year-old president added that Washington would prefer to avoid such a scenario because it could lead to “American troops fighting Russian troops”.

– If Putin takes Ukraine, he won’t stop there. He’s going to keep going. He’s made that pretty clear. If Putin attacks a NATO ally, and he keeps going and then he attacks a NATO member, and we’ve committed as a NATO member that we defend every inch of NATO territory, then we’ll have something that we don’t seek and that we don’t have today: American troops fighting Russian troops, Biden said.

Russian ambassador: “Provocative rhetoric”

Moscow’s ambassador to Washington, Anatoly Antonov, said that Biden’s statements about a potential conflict between Russia and NATO were mainly about scraping money for the US defense budget.

– Such horror stories are invented to justify to taxpayers and sober-minded political forces the huge costs of ‘containing’ the Russian Federation, Antonov said, arguing that the US has “lost touch with reality”.

– This kind of provocative rhetoric is unacceptable for a responsible nuclear state, the ambassador added.
