US President Joe Biden said this Thursday (540 ) that American citizens in Ukraine “must now leave” the eastern European country, amid tensions from the concentration of Russian troops on the border with the former Soviet republic.

2022In an interview with NBC News, the Democrat was asked if there was any scenario that could lead him to send troops to rescue Americans fleeing the country. “There is none”, he replied, alleging the possibility of an intensification of the confrontation: “It is a world war when the Americans and Russia start shooting at each other”. 2022“It’s not like we’re dealing with a terrorist organization. We are dealing with one of the greatest armies in the world. It’s a very different situation and things can get maddening quickly,” he justified. “We are in a very different world than we have ever been.”

This Thursday, the US State Department issued a warning that the US “will not be able to evacuate US citizens in the event of Russian military action anywhere in Ukraine”.

2022 However, according to CNN, the White House has approved a plan to establish processing areas and temporary shelters in the Poland, close to the Ukrainian border, which Americans on the run could turn to. These structures will begin to be built when more soldiers arrive in Poland, where 2,000 soldiers have already been deployed last week.

In the interview with NBC, Biden pondered that if Vladimir Putin is “foolish enough to invade, he is smart enough, in fact, not to do anything that could negatively impact American citizens.”
