On Tuesday, Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, said that he greeted security discussions with Europe, and his Armed Force reported withdrawing some of its forces near the Ukrainian border. But, Joe Biden, the US President, said America hadn’t confirmed Moscow’s retreating claim and that an incursion was still a clear possibility.
In the White House address, Biden said the U.S. hasn’t yet ascertained that some Russian troops are retreating from the Ukrainian border and returning to their stations, in spite of Russian official’s claims. But due to a spell of mixed signals from the Kremlin, leaders from the West and US were thoughtfully hopeful that a potential invasion might have been stopped, at least for now.
Biden said that it would be respectable if Moscow had pulled back its military, but ‘we’ve not yet verified that.’ He indeed alerted that their analysts specify that they keep on very much in a threatening position. The U.S. leader said that Moscow had over 0.15 million personnel accumulated near Ukraine, up significantly from some earlier approximations of near 0.13 million, and noted that an incursion remains markedly possible.
The Russian leader said he doesn’t want to fight and would count on talks in his attempts to eradicate any chance that the post-Soviet country could one day become a NATO member. But simultaneously, he did not pledge to an entire withdrawal of forces, saying Moscow’s subsequent moves in the stalemate would rely on how the situation develops.
Biden says: “We should give diplomacy every chance to succeed.
And I believe there are real ways to address our respective security concerns”

“Russians Aren’t US Enemy” – Biden
In the White House address, the US President said to the citizens of Russia that America and its partners aren’t a threat to them, and added that he’s ready to offer ‘diplomacy ever chance to succeed’ in avoiding a conflict in the West. Moreover, Biden said that the U.S. and NATO are not a threat to Russia. Ukraine is also not a threat to Moscow. The United States and its allies have no missiles on Ukrainian land. They don’t have intentions to put arms there, as well. They’re not aiming at Russian people and don’t endeavor to destabilize the Kremlin. Biden said to Russian citizens that they’re not ‘US enemy.’
However, Joe Biden maintained that America and its NATO allies wouldn’t sacrifice fundamental principles respecting the sovereignty of Ukraine. He said that two routes are still effective, but cautioned if Moscow commits this breach by attacking the East European country, responsible countries worldwide won’t hesitate to answer. Biden said that if the world doesn’t stand for freedom where it’s at risk now, ‘we surely will pay an unduly high price in the future.’
The United States and Western military alliance, which continue to warn that Putin could order Ukraine invasion at any time, have sent forces and ordnance to shore up NATO nations in the former Soviet Republic. But Moscow has rebuffed having such intentions. Instead, it wants Europe to keep Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries out of the military coalition, stop arms deployment along borders with Russia, and reducing forces from the East European region.
