Biden Torches Putin For ‘Brutal Assault’ On Ukraine, As He Announces Sanctions: ‘Freedom Will Prevail’

Biden Torches Putin For ‘Brutal Assault’ On Ukraine, As He Announces Sanctions:
‘Freedom Will Prevail’

The president announced ‘severe’ sanctions being imposed against Russia in response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

President Joe Biden delivered an aggressive speech denouncing Russian President Vladimir Putin‘s attack on Ukraine from the White House on Thursday February 24. Biden announced further economic sanctions being placed on the Russian government on imports and the country’s elites in order to place a massive cost on the Russian economy and to further the impact on the country.

As he condemned the attacks on Ukraine, Biden explained that Putin had been planning the invasion with malicious intent for a long time. “The Russian military’s begun a brutal assault on the people of Ukraine without provocation, without justification, without necessity. This is a premeditated attack. Vladimir Putin has been planning this for months,” he said. “He moved more than 175,000 troops and military equipment into positions along the Ukrainian border. He moved blood supplies into position and built up field hospitals, which tells you all you need to know about his intentions all along.”

Biden called out Putin for disregarding the U.S. and other allies’ attempts to prevent an attack. “He rejected every good faith effort the United States and our allies and partners made to address our mutual security concerns through dialogue to avoid needless conflict and avert human suffering,” he said.

The president denounced claims from Putin that Ukraine were preparing to launch an attack on Russia, before sharing the sanctions. “Putin is the aggressor. Putin chose this war, and now he and his country will bare the consequences,” he said. “Today, I’m authorizing additional strong sanctions and new limitations on what can be exported to Russia. This is going to impose severe cost on the Russian economy, both immediately and over time. We have purposefully designed these sanctions to maximize the long term impact on Russia and to minimize the impact on the United States and our allies.”

After going through the ins-and-outs of how the new sanctions will affect Russia’s economy and development, including that major Russian banks would be frozen in the United States, Biden announced that NATO allies will meet to figure out the next steps to strengthen the organization’s alliance and said where he’d authorized troops to be deployed. “Our forces are not and will not be involved in the conflict with Russia in Ukraine. Our forces are not going to Europe to fight in Ukraine, but to defend our NATO allies and reassure those allies in the East,” he said. “This aggression cannot go unanswered. If it did, the consequences for America would be much worse. America stands up to bullies. We stand up for freedom. This is who we are.”

Towards the end of his speech, Biden showed more support for Ukraine, while vowing to make Putin a “pariah” to the rest of the world. “The Ukrainian people have known 30 years of independence, and they’ve repeatedly shown that they will not tolerate anyone who tries to take their country backwards,” he said. “Now, the entire world sees clearly what [Putin] and his Kremlin allies are really all about. This was never about a genuine security concern on their part. It was always about naked aggression, about Putin’s desire for empire by any means necessary.

Before taking questions from reporters Biden gave one more reassurance that Russia would lose in the fight for freedom. “The United States and our allies and partners  will emerge from this stronger, more united, more determined, and more purposeful,” he said. “Liberty, democracy, human dignity: these are the forces far more powerful than fear and oppression. They cannot be extinguished by tyrants like Putin and his armies. They cannot be erased from people’s hearts and hopes by any amount of violence and intimidation. They endure. In a contest between democracy and autocracy, between sovreignty and subjugation, make no mistake: freedom will prevail.”

Monica Bellucci is pleased with her new relationship after a difficult split

Monica Bellucci, one of the world’s prettiest actresses, is in love and a new relationship. True, the woman acknowledges that the split with Vincent Cassel was really tough for her.

But the famous movie actress is now happy and free of thoughts about her previous romance. True, fans of the duo continue to remind her of their relationship. According to starhit.ru, the representatives of the cinema themselves agreed to separate amicably and politely, retaining a wonderful connection and respect.

While Mr. Cassel enjoys his connection with his wife, Monica, who has just turned 20, is considerably more wary about her new romance. And, after initially refusing to comment on the novel, she has now confirmed that she is no longer single.

Instagram

The 54-year-old star is not only still working in the film industry, but he has also preserved the position of sex symbol. Her social media photographs are still being remarked on by adoring followers. True, the actress does not highlight this and has stated repeatedly that exterior beauty has never been her top priority.

Despite the very traumatic divorce, she keeps working, raising her two girls, and bringing up her new love on a regular basis. She mentioned it in the Instagram comments.

But for the time being, she merely claims she is able to believe in love and trust her spouse again. She previously stated that she felt disoriented and dissatisfied following a two-decade romance. In an interview with Paris Match, the actress stated that a completely new and fantastic time in her life has begun. And, while the magazine just hinted at the new relationship, it showed that happiness is also dependent on a new crush.

Monica Bellucci ended her relationship with a much younger lover: “We will be friends until the end of our lives.”

The famous Italian actress Monica Bellucci’s romantic connection with the young artist Nicolas Lefebvre took an unexpected turn. The 54-year-old actor and the 36-year-old artist are no longer together. Ms. Bellucci revealed the split in an interview with a French newspaper.

According to galpost.com, the actress claimed that while the couple’s love connection has ended, they intend to remain friends. Ms. Bellucci did not give a reason for the breakup, according to galpost.com.

“Of course, Nicholas and I adore one other. He was a great teacher to me. He is a gifted individual with exceptional artistic ability. Unfortunately, our connection will alter from now on; we will stay friends until the end of our lives,” M. Bellucci said.

This is the Italian actress’s first meaningful relationship after her sad breakup with French actor Vincent Cassel. The young artist’s romantic relationship is thought to have begun in December, when the paparazzi managed to picture the two meeting surreptitiously. There was no mistake about it: the couple kissed on the street and exchanged pleasant feelings.

Bellucci and Lefebvre made their first public appearance together in March, at an event in Madrid. The performance of the duo has piqued the interest of the international media. According to M. Bellucci, the relationship’s secrecy drew her and N. Lefebvre very close. She and her ex-lover shared similar viewpoints and hobbies, including a love of travel.

“I’ve been dating the same person for a long time, and everything is OK.” His job requires him to travel extensively over the world. That’s why he completely understands me and approves of my lifestyle. “I am overjoyed,” M. Bellucci previously stated.

It is only fitting to recall that the actress, regarded as one of the most beautiful women in the world, was married twice. Claudio Carlos Basso, an Italian photographer, was Bellucci’s first husband. In the 1990s, the pair married and divorced in 1994. On the shooting of the film “L’appartement,” M. Bellucci met French actor V. Cassel. The actors’ wedding took place in 1999. The couple was the parents of two girls. Elder Deva is an exact replica of her famous mother. M. Bellucci and V. Cassel announced their divorce in August 2013.
