On Tuesday, President Biden announces sanctions against Russia amid the escalating conflict in Ukraine.

The Hill reports:

President Biden said Tuesday that the U.S. would sanction Russian sovereign debt and Russian elites as well as their family members in response to Russia’s deployment of troops to regions in eastern Ukraine.

Biden also said that the U.S. would sanction Russian financial institutions, VEB and Russia’s military bank

The announcement came a day after Russian President Vladimir Putin recognized the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics as independent. [Read Next: Putin Signs Order Recognizing Breakaway Republics in Eastern Ukraine, Laying Foundation for Imminent War]

On Tuesday, Russian lawmakers greenlit a request by Putin to use military force outside of Russia, a move that could pave the way for a broader Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“He is setting up a rationale to take more territory by force, in my view,” Biden said of Putin in remarks from the East Room. “This is the beginning of a Russian invasion of Ukraine.”

While announcing the latest sanctions against Russia, President Biden made it clear this is only the beginning if Moscow engages in a broader invasion of Ukraine.

“If Russia goes further with this invasion, we stand prepared to go further as with sanctions,” President Biden said.

    1. He wouldn’t have to nothing – noda – zilch -because we would never be in this position – are you for real – Trump WAS RESPECTED

  1. Biden is a JOKE and no one takes him seriously! The entire world is laughing at him and his entire administration of clueless fools!

  2. I’m sure Little Joe ( not Bonanza’s) has Putin shaking in his boots!!!! Playing Big Bad
    Biden now!!!! Next he’ll give him 30 lashes with a wet noodle!!! Everything he tries to
    get involved in is a disaster!!! How about our planes that can’t fly and the military you
    are screwing up….mandates right most important!! Oh and of course taking down Trump
    any way you and Piglosi can using all resources!!! Oh and the border…great job Little Joe!
    The Pondarosa is being overrun with illegals & drugs in case you haven’t noticed!!!!

    1. The ultimate sanction. Watch out Putin. Biden just let loose with his blockbuster sanction. Putin you will not get a christmas card from Biden. I hope you feel the weight of this blow.

  3. ooooooo…. further sanctions! As millions stream across our border assisted by the Biden admisistration the US is getting involved in another event which is none of our business. The “oh gee but what might come next” defense is still a load of crap. What sanctions will keep China from taking Tiawan? Or the rest of Indochina? Obama was right. If you really want to f something up, Joe is your man. For those “hawks” who cry out for war in Ukraine, try learning a bit about that countrys history at least since 1990. It was a mess that our involvement only made worse.

  4. Biden is an idiot and Putin knows it…….and so does Xi Jinping! You can expect China to take over Taiwan in the near future. None of this would have happened if Trump were President.

  5. Biden said expect gas prices to go up, so once again the American public gets screwed by his dumb mistakes. Open the damn pipeline.

  6. OMG I bet Putin is shaking in his boots —- Oh No- that is just the vibrations of the tank he is in as he invades Ukraine. Why should he fear an incapacitated boob?

  7. Oh — my — God. Even the democrats must see our leader is a squinty eyed weenie. The only act that will make Putin pay attention will be to put The Keystone XL pipeline back on schedule. As an exclamation point, acceleration of natural gas consumption in the U.S. and all of its allies might convince the entire world that the U.S. is angry and determined to reclaim its competitive edge. Finally, termination of the climate nonsense would put a period on our position.

    We the people cannot simply wring our hands and complain about our leadership. We must make our demands known through our state and federal governments. Blinken’s little talk was not convincing and merely threatened tougher market competition. Putin considers this his “splendid little war” doesn’t give a hoot about the market place. His people are still tough since their economy never fully recovered from World War Two and the Afghanistan debacle.

  8. The way this looks on the putz side is he is just putting his toes in the water to see what happens then if the water is warm lookout all bets are off.

  9. Good OLD China Boy Groper Joe Bribedem, he is our jellyfish in charge(?) and will do absolutely NOTHING to stop Putin. Remember Joey boy, this is just a minor incursion.

  10. Just wait until the CCP takes Taiwan back. Good ol’ China Boy Groper Joe Bribedem will do nothing there either. Three cheers for the spineless jellyfish coward that 81 MILLION BONEHEADED LEMMINGS allegedly voted for.

    1. Allegedly is the right word. There is no doubt in my mind that the election was a fraud and the Democrat Political Party cheated and stuffed fake ballots in key areas.

  11. I’m surprised Joe didn’t DEMAND Putin take a “time out” and have to stand in the corner for 30 minutes! Now let’s all go get an ice cream cone!

  12. Biden only enriched Russia and played into Putin’s hands, especially when he closed the pipeline making Europe and the US now more dependent on Russia’s oil. We are the laughing stock of the world with this deranged President. We could help our energy and chain supply shortage, which is having a domino effect on other problems and getting worse by the day, if Biden had the intelligence and sound judgement to reopen the Keystone pipeline. Sadly he does not and the US will continue its downfall.

  13. Biden is the one who would be sanctioned and Kamala, too. Kamala cannot ever be a legal President of the United States because she was not born here. What a laugh and treason that would be if she did make it to President. Everything Biden does backfires and is equal to treason every time he opens his pedophile mouth. Get rid of that monster for good this time. We all know that the real Biden is dead and has been for years. That in itself is high treason. Maybe all of us in American need to march to Atlanta or wherever fake Biden is hiding and take care of him ourselves. Sounds like a plan to me. I know so any people that are sick of him. Those photos of Biden in other articles don’t look like him at all. We can’t be fooled anymore!!!!!

    1. Kamala Harris was born in Oakland, CA to legal permanent resident immigrants. That makes her a native U. S. citizen. She was born in 1964, so she’s old enough. That being said, while she meets the legal requirement to be President, she does not appear to have the skills, wisdom or principles to be a good President, or even an average one.

  14. Biden is captive of Xi and Putin and almost all know this. So the Biden bark is for show and has nothing behind it. So Putin is a Russian socialist, not a German one. So he sells gas to China, if they build a new pipeline. far longer that the one to Germany. Send oil to China and then pay them also to build half of the pipeline with Russian pipe.

    Once East Ukraine is settled, he takes the West by simple demand; or starves it into submission, while also taking back all other parts of the USSR.

    1. Just so all the “green” fanatics in this country know, that oil they didn’t want to go through the Keystone XL pipeline is being shipped in tankers to China. The tankers are far more polluting than the pipeline, and the oil will be burned in much dirtier equipment in China. Yep, they’re saving the planet.

  15. Oh, ouchhhhh Biden? Do the same thing to the USA as you`re doing to those nasty – nasty Russians. Close our borders and let the Keystone pipeline finish what they started. You big meanie.

  16. Woe to you, O land, when your king is a child, And your princes feast in the morning!” (Ecclesiastes 10:16) The same might be said if the leader is entering “second childhood.”

  17. Dont worry about Biden (Bygone) Of course he would be afraid of Putin, very afraid because Biden and Soros contaminated Ukraine and set up their own Oligarch corrupt officials there to do their bidding. the people of Ukraine have been oppressed and brainwashed by their corrupt Media, and Putin is freeing teh people from Oppression. In fact teh people are celebrating and lighting up teh skies with fireworks. At last the Khazerian mafia who were trafficking children and women are removed Thank God

  18. Biden is an empty suit and like a puppet has his movements directed by the man behind the curtain (???) and he telegraphs every move which falls right into (Ex KGB Officer) Putin’s web—-just another failure by the “pretender & Chief” like Afghanistan, Our border with Mexico, destroying Our ENERGY INDEPENDENCE and driving the price of FUEL====Russia wins with more money for her OIL—-Americans get screwed by INFLATION.
