Joe Biden assures “total unanimity with European leaders” as threats against Russia continue

Joe Biden, the President of the United States, stated that there was broad agreement with the main European leaders to maintain the position North Atlantic Treaty Organization (OTAN) in the East against Russia. The statement came after it was learned Monday that the United States warned 8,500 troops to find out what happened to its troops. Vladimir Putin. On Wednesday, in France, representatives of Russia, Ukraine and France will hold a summit to “de-escalate” the conflict.

Simultaneously, the North American government deployed an “alert” version to about 9,000 troops so they enlisted if Russia wanted to advance on Ukrainian soil.

From atop the Pentagon they realized it was a sign of strength to the Kremlin. “This sends a very clear signal to Putin that we take our responsibilities to NATO seriously,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said bluntly.

This Monday, January 24, it became known that NATO covered Eastern Europe with more war gear after sending F16 planes from Norway to Lithuania, Spanish frigates to the Black Sea, F-35 planes from Holland to Bulgaria and French troops to Romania.

In addition, the United States began withdrawing its diplomatic personnel from Ukrainian territory, wary of the growing conflict. Britain and Australia followed a similar path, inviting their diplomat relatives to leave Kiev. France, for its part, asks its citizens to avoid traveling to the Baltic capital if it is not essential.

The position of the United Kingdom, the German word and the request of the President of Ukraine

Both from the controversial Boris Johnson government and from the new German cabinet, they are united in highlighting the unification of a strong government on the Old Continent and warning that if Russia advances to Ukraine there will be consequences.

However, not everything is agreement and agreement, within the western union. The proof is the position of the head of foreign policy European Union (EU), Joseph Borrell, which is more measurable in the face of NATO’s progress. “You have to stay calm and do what you have to do, but avoid getting nervous,” Borrell said, trying to ease the escalation a bit.
