The United States and its allies will continue to put pressure on Russia to isolate its economy. This was announced by U.S. President Joe Biden, speaking at the White House on Wednesday with a brief speech on Washington’s military assistance to Kyiv.
“Together with our allies and partners, we will maintain pressure on the collapsing economy of [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, isolating him in the global arena. This is our goal – for Putin to pay the price so that his position weakens. At the same time, we will strengthen the capabilities of Ukrainians on the battlefield and at the negotiating table,” he said.
Biden also indicated that the United States will support Ukraine’s economy and provide humanitarian assistance to it. “Over the past few weeks alone, we have provided $300 million in humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine, tens of thousands of tons of food, water, medicines and other basic necessities,” the White House host added.
At the same time, the U.S. President noted that Washington enjoys the full support of its allies in its actions in the situation around Ukraine. “Our allies and partners have increased security supplies and will continue to help ensure these supplies. The United States and our allies and partners are fully committed to increasing the supply of weapons to Ukrainians,” he added.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that the Western sanctions policy against Moscow has all the signs of aggression, and the policy of containing Russia is a long-term strategy of the West.
