NOW Joe Biden vows to impose “severe sanctions on Russia” amid chilling photos of people fleeing Ukraine.
Biden spoke to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy by phone and he said he condemns “the unprovoked and unprovoked attack by Russian military forces.”
Meanwhile, millions of Ukrainians were either fleeing the country or taking shelter in place when bombs hit the capital, Kyiv.
In a videoZelenskyy announced the marriage law and urged people to stay at home.
“We are working. The army is working,” he said. “Don’t panic. We are very strong. We are ready for anything. We will defeat everyone. Because we are Ukraine”.
Zelenskyy rejected Moscow’s claims that Ukraine was a threat to Russia and made an emotional plea for peace to the Russian people.
“You are being told that this is a plan to liberate the Ukrainian people,” he said while speaking in Russian. “But the Ukrainian people are free.”
“President Putin has chosen a premeditated war that will bring catastrophic loss of life and property,” Biden said in a statement.
“Russia alone is responsible for the death and devastation this attack will bring, and the United States and its Allies and partners will respond in a united and decisive manner. The world will hold Russia accountable.”
