It will pay a heavy price if it continues its behavior. Putin announced his intention to send Russian forces into eastern Ukraine and Putin began the invasion process. Russia has set aside all efforts, and we will start applying 4 sanctions on Russian banking institutions, and we will deprive them of any business dealings in the United States. US forces will be deployed in Eastern Europe in countries such as Estonia and Lithuania, and Russian provocations have caused energy prices to rise. United with allies to protect Ukraine, we take it seriously and still hope diplomacy has a chance on the Ukraine crisis. We will defend every inch of NATO territory. Putin launched a direct attack on Ukraine’s right to exist, and we will judge Russia’s actions, not its words.
