Joe Biden rules out direct NATO-Russia clash, says such conflict would trigger 'World War 3'

Washington/IBNS: President Joe Biden Friday ruled out any direct intervention by the United States in Russia's war against Ukraine stating that such NATO-Kremlin clash would lead to "World War 3".

"We will not fight a war against Russia in Ukraine," Biden said in a speech at the White House amid desperate calls from Ukraine for NATO to intervene against the Russian attack.

Biden also spoke with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to underscore his support for the Ukrainian people as they continue to defend their country against what he called "Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified attack".

President Biden highlighted how the United States is continuing to surge security, humanitarian, and economic assistance to Ukraine.

He also updated President Zelenskyy on the actions the United States is taking today in coordination with the G7 and the EU to further raise the costs on Russia.

Earlier, Biden had announced that the US is banning all imports of Russian oil, gas and energy.

"That means Russian oil will no longer be acceptable at U.S. ports and the American people will deal another powerful blow to Putin," he had said.
