Biden Condemns ‘Utter Brutality’ of Russian Missile Strikes
Updated on

President Joe Biden condemned the “utter brutality” of Russia’s missile barrage at civilian targets in Ukraine -- a significant escalation of a conflict now in its eighth month.

Biden in a statement Monday signaled he could approve new sanctions on Russia and weapons shipments to Ukraine. He said the US and its allies would “continue to impose costs” on the Kremlin and “provide the support necessary for Ukrainian forces to defend their country and their freedom.”
