Biden’s firm messages to Putin ahead of their Wednesday meeting in Geneva



US President Joe Biden on Monday promised to tell Russian President Vladimir Putin what “his red lines” are when they meet in Geneva on Wednesday. “We are not looking for a conflict with Russia, but we will respond if Russia continues its activities”, he declared during his press conference at the end of the NATO summit in Brussels.

Joe Biden admitted that Vladimir Putin is an “intelligent” and “tough” man. But he must understand that the death of the imprisoned opponent Alexeï Navalny would be “a tragedy”, he warned.

Also closes on Ukraine

The American president also denounced the “aggressive acts of Russia” and insisted on his will and that of NATO to “support the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine”.

“We will do everything possible so that Ukraine can resist the aggression,” said Joe Biden. But he warned that Ukraine’s NATO membership, insisted on by President Volodymyr Zelensky, did not depend on him, but on a decision by the thirty NATO members.
