Russia’s malicious actions will have repercussions – Biden
The US wants to ease tensions with Russia, but it will always respond to the Kremlin’s malicious activities. This was stated by US President Joe Biden during his first appeal to both chambers of Congress following the results of 100 days of work in the White House, Ukrinform notes.
“Concerning Russia, I know that this worries some of you, but I made it clear to Putin that, although we don’t seek to escalate, their actions will have consequences”, – Biden said.
He recalled that his administration responded proportionally to Russia’s interference in the US elections and cyberattacks on the US government and business structures.
At the same time, the government aims to cooperate with the Russian Federation in situations where this is in the mutual interests of the countries. As an example, Biden called interaction to confront climate change and the extension of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.
Earlier, the United States transferred tactical equipment to Ukraine for almost $ 8 million.
