If Russia invades Ukraine, the United States and its allies will respond appropriately. US President Joe Biden warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday night.
However, Russia is not heeding this threat from the United States. This was stated by the Russian Ambassador to Sweden Viktor Tatarinsev.
The Russian diplomat, who is known for his outspokenness, said Moscow did not heed the threat of Western sanctions.
“I am sorry to hear that,” said Viktor Tatarinsev. At that time, uttering an inaudible word, he said, “nothing can come of it because of their ban.”
“We already have a lot of such restrictions,” he said. Commenting that these sanctions have had a positive effect on the economy, he said that the new sanctions are not positive, but will not be what the West is saying.
Earlier in the day, President Putin and Biden had an hour-long phone conversation on Saturday night amid tensions over Ukraine. Biden warns Russian president
The Kremlin has long rallied millions of troops along the Ukrainian border. In retaliation, NATO, a Western military alliance, has stepped up its military presence in Eastern Europe. All in all, war is raging in Europe. Russia has said in the past that it has no plans to intervene in Ukraine.
