POTOMACH, Maryland, May 9 (Reuters) – US President Joe Biden said on Monday he was concerned that Russian President Vladimir Putin had no way out of the Ukraine war, and Biden said he was trying to figure out what to do about it. which – which.

Biden, speaking at a political fundraiser in a Washington suburb, said Putin mistakenly believed that an invasion of Ukraine would lead to the disintegration of NATO and the disintegration of the European Union.

Instead, the United States and many European countries sided with Ukraine.

The Russian attack on Kyiv was defeated again in March by the powerful Ukrainian resistance. Russia, which calls the invasion a “special military operation”, sent more troops to Ukraine to launch a massive offensive last month in the eastern part of the country, but its gains have been slow.

Biden said Putin is a very sensitive man and the problem he worries now is that the Russian leader “has no way out right now, and I’m trying to figure out what we’re going to do about that.”
