Biden Plans More Sanctions On Russia After Putin's Suspension Of Treaty

 February 22, 2023

President Joe Biden announced he plans to implement more sanctions on Russia "this week."

The sanctions announcement comes as Russian President Vladimir Putin suspended a U.S. nuclear treaty this week.

"Speaking in Warsaw, Poland, with Ukrainian colored yellow and blue lights reflected on Royal Castle, Biden spoke about Russia’s war against Ukraine, a conflict based on decades of territorial claims. Biden said he will place more sanctions on Russia without noting the specifics," reports Breitbart.

"Together we made sure Russia is paying the price for its abuses," Biden said. "We continue to maintain the largest sanctions regime ever imposed on any country in history."

"And we are going to announce more sanctions this week together with our partners," Biden announced. "We will hold those accountable for those responsible for this war, and will seek justice for the war crimes and crimes against humanity continuing to be committed by the Russians."

"The Biden administration has imposed approximately 1,500 new and 750 amended sanctions and export controls against Russia since the Ukrainian war began last year, according to the State Department," reported by Breitbart News.

Prior to Biden's speech, Putin announced the unilateral suspension of a 2011 nuclear pact, named New START agreement, that sought to limit Russian and American nuclear development.

"I am forced to announce today that Russia is suspending its participation in the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty," Putin said. "The West uses Ukraine as a ram against Russia."

Putin blasted the West for its so-called moral rot or "spiritual catastrophe." He said, "They distort historical facts and constantly attack our culture, the Russian Orthodox Church, and other traditional religions of our country. Look at what they do with their own peoples: the destruction of the family, cultural and national identity, perversion, and the abuse of children are declared the norm. And priests are forced to bless same-sex marriages."
