President Joe Biden warned Americans on Tuesday that Russia could soon invade Ukraine.
Biden announced he has put 8,500 U.S. troops on alert as of Monday to prepare for possible deployment in Europe.
“We have no intentions of putting U.S. forces in Ukraine,” he said, “there is not going to be any American forces moving into Ukraine.”
“We have no intention of putting American forces, NATO forces in Ukraine. But…there are gonna be serious economic consequences if [Putin] moves,” Pres. Biden says. https://t.co/CvyxQ9oyhc

The president has also warned Americans to leave Ukraine, as there are no evacuation plans for anyone who may be caught in the country during a Russian invasion.

The pattern seems to mirror Biden’s failed military withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021, where many Americans were left in the nation under Taliban rule.
The growing concern over Ukraine also reveals Biden is both unlikely to do anything and that Ukrainians are on their own in responding to Putin’s threats.
