A possible Russian invasion of Ukraine could be the “biggest invasion since World War II, given Russia's massive military presence near the Ukrainian border, US President Joe Biden was quoted as saying by the DPA.

Such an event could change the world, the president told reporters. Biden warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin “continues to gather troops along the Ukrainian border from Belarus.”

Asked if he would consider taking the unusual step of imposing sanctions directly on Putin if Russia invades Ukraine, Biden said yes, according to Reuters.

The President stressed that US troops in Ukraine will not be deployed.

Yesterday, a senior US government official said Washington and its allies were preparing for a possible reduction in Russian gas supplies to Europe in case of escalation in Ukraine.

We are working with countries and companies around the world to ensure security of supply and mitigate the price shock affecting both Americans and the global economy, he said.
