As he departed the White House, President Biden told reporters this morning that the US has "reason to believe" Russia is "engaged in a false flag operation.”
"Every indication that we have is that they are prepared to go into Ukraine, attack Ukraine," Biden said, adding, "My sense is it will happen within the next several days."
He said the Russian responses have been sent but he hasn’t read them yet.
He noted Secretary of State Antony Blinken will go to the United Nations today and will lay out a diplomatic path, reiterating that “there is a path.”
Biden added he has “no plans to call Putin.”
He spoke for under two minutes before boarding Marine One to travel to Ohio.
