President Biden says the U.S. and allies remain in "lockstep" on the escalating crisis between Russia and Ukraine. At the White House Friday, Biden accused Russia of pushing out vast misinformation ahead of a possible invasion. He said it's right out of Russia's playbook, creating a false justification to justify an attack against Ukraine. Biden hosted a call with European allies and Canada's prime minister before giving his speech.
Vice President Harris says there will be a "swift, severe and united" response if Russia invades Ukraine. The Vice President gave the keynote address at the Munich Security Conference in Germany today, and vowed there would be "significant and unprecedented" economic costs for Russia. On Friday, President Biden said he believes Russia will invade Ukraine in the coming days. Vladimir Putin will be attending Russian nuclear missile drills today.
