U.S. President Joe Biden announced that there will be new sanctions against Russia in an attempt to isolate the country from the larger global economy following its invasion of Ukraine, and that the United States remains committed to the terms of the NATO alliance.
NATO, or the North-Atlantic Treaty Organization, is a military alliance among 30 countries. It was established in 1949.
“Putin is the aggressor. Putin chose this war,” Biden said in a Feb. 24 speech from the White House. “And now he and his country will bear the consequences.”
Those consequences, the president explained, would be “additional strong sanctions and new limitations on what can be exported to Russia.”
