The president of the United States, Joe Biden, accused the Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, on Wednesday night of launching an “unprovoked and unwarranted” attack against Ukraine and betting on a “premeditated war” which will cause “catastrophic” losses.

Putin announced after four in the morning this Thursday (Russian time) “a special military operation” in Ukraine, after the request by the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk to repel the “aggression” of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, and in the middle of an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council to deal with the crisis. According to Putin, clashes between Ukrainian and Russian forces are “inevitable”, and it will be “just a matter of time”.

“Only Russia is responsible for the death and destruction this attack will bring and The United States and its allies and partners will respond in a united and determined manner. The world will hold Russia accountable,” Biden said in a brief statement.

The US president explained that he was going to follow the situation from the White House overnight and that this Thursday morning he will meet with his G7 counterparts before addressing his fellow citizens to “announce further consequences” against Russia for “this unnecessary act of aggression against Ukraine and global peace and security”.

“We will also coordinate with our NATO allies to ensure a strong response and unity that deters any aggression against the Alliance,” added the US president.
