President Joe Biden vowed to “rally the world” against Russia if Vladimir Putin decides to invade Ukraine.

Biden, addressing the nation from the East Room of the White House on Tuesday afternoon, said the U.S. is prepared for all options as Russian forces remain in a threatening position.

“If Russia attacks Ukraine, it’d be met with overwhelming international condemnation,” Biden warned. “The world will not forget that Russia chose needless death and destruction. Invading Ukraine will prove to be a self-inflicted wound.”

Biden spoke to Putin from Camp David on February 12 for one hour, according to the White House. During the call, Biden reiterated that the U.S. and its NATO allies are united in slapping Russia with severe sanctions if an attack takes place.
