“It will change the course of the war in a way not seen since World War II,” the US president warned during an interview with CBS, the first parts of which were published Friday evening.
“Don’t do it, don’t do it, don’t do it,” Joe Biden told Russian President Vladimir Putin, promising a “significant” response from the United States if the move was made.
He warned that Russia “will become even more of a pariah in the world than it has ever been.”
Within days, the forces at Kew had regained the initiative in a battle that had seemed stuck on an almost immobile front line since early summer.
Nevertheless, Vladimir Putin vowed on Friday that his offensive in Ukraine would continue. “There is no need to change the plan… we are in no rush,” he said.
