Biden also confirmed that he clearly stated in an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin Any movement of Russian forces outside the border with Ukraine would be considered an invasion.

Biden also assured that the United States has already prepared a list of broad sanctions that will be imposed on Moscow if it is against Ukraine strongly.

Commentators regard these words as a correction to the US president’s statement on Wednesday. Joe Biden said at the time that the consequences for Russia could be less in the event of a “simple invasion”.
