US President Joe Biden Thinks Russian Will Mount An Attack On Ukraine

President Joe Biden has said he thinks Russia will mount an attack on Ukraine. Speaking at a news conference marking a year in office, the US President suggested there was an inevitability about Russian President Vladimir Putin's actions.

"My guess is he will move in; he has to do something, " Joe Biden said. "Do I think he will test the west, test the United States and NATO? Yes. As significantly as he can?yes,I think he will." He said.

The president offered a distinction between an invasion and an incursion, appearing to infer that a smaller incursion would not prompt massive sanctions. He said Russian Will be accountable if it invades since the forces are massed on the border.

Mr President Biden concluded in his Ukraine comments in news conference with a warning."We need to be very careful on how we move forward. Make it clear to him that there are prices to pay that could in fact cost his country an awful lot." The president said.
