US President Joe Biden pledged in a statement on Friday that the United States would “work with our allies and partners to impose additional swift and decisive economic measures against Russia” if it annexed Ukraine.

Biden, who had previously taken several economic and financial sanctions against the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin, considered that “the Russian referendums are sham and a false pretext to try to annex parts of Ukraine by force.”
