US President Joe Biden predicted a Russian invasion of Ukraine on Wednesday. He expects President Vladimir Putin to take that step, despite the major economic consequences of such an invasion for Russia.

 

Biden did suggest that a “minor raid” would provoke less of a response than a large-scale invasion of the country. “I’m not so sure he knows what he’s going to do. I think he’s going to move in. He’s got to do something,” Biden said in a speech celebrating his first year as president. “He’s trying to find his place in the world between China and the West.”

The US president’s prediction shows once again that the United States assumes that Russia will take action in neighbouring Ukraine. The Russians have gathered more than 100,000 troops near the border.

Biden spoke to Putin twice last month and said his counterpart is aware of the economic sanctions the US is preparing. However, if Russia proceeds with a full-scale invasion, Biden said it would cost the country dearly.

“If they actually do what they can do with the troops that have gathered at the border, it will be a disaster for Russia if it invades further into Ukraine.” According to the US president, the allies are ready to hit the Russian economy hard.
