Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Would Consider Personally Sanctioning Putin Over Ukraine” – below is their description.
President Joe Biden said he would consider personally sanctioning Vladimir Putin if he orders an invasion of Ukraine, escalating the U.S. effort to deter the Russian leader from war.
“Yes,” Biden said Tuesday in Washington, in answer to a reporter’s question about whether he could see Putin facing U.S. sanctions. “I would see that.”
The U.S. rarely levels sanctions directly against heads of state. But Biden has threatened some of the most severe economic penalties the U.S. and its allies can muster if Putin orders more than 100,000 troops massed outside Ukraine to cross the country’s border.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
