TRIBUNNEWS.COM – The President of the United States, Joe Biden stressed that the US and NATO will not fight Russia in Ukraine.
Biden assessed that the intervention of his party and allies has the potential to lead to World War III.
“We will continue to stand together with our allies in Europe and send an unmistakable message.”
“We will defend every inch of NATO territory with the full strength of a united NATO,” Biden said after announcing additional sanctions against Russia.
“We are not going to war against Russia in Ukraine. A direct conflict between NATO and Russia is World War III, something we have to prevent,” Biden explained.
It is Biden’s strongest warning yet against questions about whether an escalation in Ukraine will trigger a US military response.

Reported The Hillsome lawmakers are pushing for the Biden government to establish a no-fly zone in Ukraine.
This idea has been rejected by the White House because it would involve US and allied forces directly on the battlefield.
Establishing a no-fly zone means the US military must shoot down a Russian plane flying over Ukraine, according to a military commander.
“Don’t kid yourself: No matter what you all say, it’s called World War III, okay?” Biden said.
