U.S. President Joe Biden slammed Russian President Vladimir Putin in his State of the Union speech before Congress on Tuesday night, adding that the latter “has no idea what's coming.”
Even as Democrats and Republicans remain at odds over tax, gun, and voting laws, members of both parties stood in solidarity with Ukraine after Russia launched a full scale invasion of the country. Biden said, "Let each of us if you're able to stand, stand and send an unmistakable signal to Ukraine and to the world."
This comes as Western nations including the U.S., Canada, Great Britain and the European Commission have imposed stringent sanctions against Russia for launching a full scale attack on Ukraine. Biden also revealed that the U.S. will be debarring Russian flights from entering the American airspace.
