Biden Sanctions Against Putin Follows EU Decision

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

Following the lead of the European Union, President Biden announced economic sanctions targeting Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The EU announced sanctions against Putin earlier on Friday and Biden followed the EU stance after he had a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

Biden, she said, decided to join the European Union in sanctioning the Russian president and his foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, after speaking with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. The EU had taken the action earlier in the day.

Also included in the sanctions from Biden is a Russian sovereign wealth fund.

White House Press Secretary Jenn Psaki posted the action on Twitter.

The decision by Biden also followed his refusal to address sanctions against Putin during his press briefing on February 22.

Biden’s critics also focused on the president’s failed effort to stop the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Too little, too late was a theme regarding the sanctions.

Biden’s removal of sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline, which he recently reversed, was also a topic of critics.

During his announcement of the first round of sanctions against Russia, Biden refused to take questions from the media.

Biden’s lack of leadership is an embarrassment and his leading from behind shows he is not capable of being an effective president.

Biden’s incompetence makes the world a much more dangerous place.
