Late Wednesday, President Biden condemned Russia’s “unprovoked and unjustified attack” following reports of bombings in Ukraine and a military speech by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“President Putin has chosen a deliberate war that will bring catastrophic loss of life and human suffering,” Mr Biden said in a statement.
“Only Russia is responsible for the deaths and destruction that this attack will bring, and the United States, its allies and partners will respond in a united and decisive way. The world will bring Russia to justice, ”the statement reads.
Mr Biden said he would talk to the American people on Thursday to update them on the situation in Ukraine.
