Brandon and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday held a virtual meeting to discuss the mounting threat of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
According to reports, the Kremlin is planning a “multi-front offensive” against Ukraine with ground troops.
Russia became emboldened after Brandon gave Vladimir Putin the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
Brandon and his Democrat allies received money from a top Russia lobbyist in 2020 before waiving sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
The Nord Stream 2 pipeline would allow Russia to bypass Ukraine and Poland and deliver gas to Germany.
This expands Vladimir Putin’s political power and influence in the region and now the Kremlin is threatening to invade Ukraine.
National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan held a press briefing and answered questions about Brandon’s threat to impose economic sanctions if Putin invades neighboring Ukraine.
Sullivan laughably claimed Brandon “looked Putin in the eye” and put him on notice.
“What are the strong economic measures? And how are they different from the ones you put on Russia in 2014 which didn’t deter Russia from taking Crimea – what are they and why do you think they’ll work better this time?” a reporter asked Jake Sullivan.
“I will look you in the eye and tell you as President Brandon looked President Putin in the eye and told him today, that things we did not do in 2014—we are prepared to do now,” Sullivan told reporters without offering specifics.
“I will look you in the eye and tell you as Pres. Brandon looked Pres. Putin in the eye and told him today, that things we did not do in 2014—we are prepared to do now,” national security adviser Sullivan says of potential economic measures against Russia. https://t.co/vOHWjbfT3M pic.twitter.com/pD8DLppzHQ
