There is some serious confusion over the state of Russia’s potential invasion of Ukraine, and that may be very much on purpose knowing what we know about Vladimir Putin.
The Russian President is a rather adept proponent of mystery, having long perfected that art of getting the rest of the world into a tizzy for whatever reason he chooses, or for no real reason at all.
Now, with reports of Russian troop deployments scaling back from their invasion-ready positions, (but also of crippling cyber attacks against Ukraine), US President Joe Biden has suggested that America is ready for whatever Putin tries to throw out there next.
President Joe Biden delivered his first comments about the situation in Ukraine directly to the American people on Tuesday.
Biden spoke from the East Room of the White House during a day of continued negotiations and developments over the pending crisis.Trending:
“We are ready with diplomacy,” Biden said. “And we are ready to respond decisively to a Russian attack on Ukraine, which is still very much a possibility.”
Putin may very well be simply toying with the international community, testing their response times, and generally looking to frustrate the rest of the world. This would not be out of the norm for the Russian President.
