Putin aware of outcome if Ukraine is invaded - Biden

United States President Joe Biden remarked on Wednesday he made it clear to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin there will be economic consequences more severe than before if Moscow invades Ukraine.

Biden also reaffirmed, however, that Washington's involvement in military actions "is not in the cards." Still, he stressed that the US will provide additional defensive help to Ukraine if needed.

The White House previously stated that Biden warned Putin during their video call that "the US and our allies would respond with strong economic and other measures in the event of military escalation."
