The video snip is 1 minute and 40 seconds long.

President Biden: Good morning.  I’m sorry to keep you waiting.  I’ve just spoken for some time with President Zelenskyy of Ukraine. I told him, as I have each and every time we’ve spoken, the United States stands with the people of Ukraine and their bravely — as they bravely fight to defend their country.  And they are doing that. And as Putin continues his merciless assault, the United States and our Allies and partners continue to work in lockstep to ramp up the economic pressure on Putin and to further isolate Russia on the global stage. Later today, together with other NATO Allies and the G7 — Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom — as well as the European Union — we’re going to jointly announce several new steps to squeeze Putin and hold him more — even more accountable for his aggression against Ukraine.  And I want to speak to a few of those points today. First, each of our nations is going to take steps to deny most-favored-nation status to Russia.  A most-favored-nation status designation means two countries have agreed to trade with each other under the best possible terms — low tariffs, few barriers to trade, and the highest possible imports allowed.

President Biden: We’re also taking a further step of banning imports of goods from several signature sectors of the Russian economy, including seafoods, vodka, and diamonds. And we’re going to continue to squeeze Putin.  The G7 will seek to deny Russia the ability to borrow from leading multinational institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. Putin is an aggressor — is the aggressor.  And Putin must pay the price. He cannot pursue a war that threatens the very foundations — which he’s doing — the very foundations of international peace and stability and then ask for financial help from the international community.

President Biden: And I also want to be clear though: We will make sure Ukraine has weapons to defend against an invading Russian force.  We will — we will send money and food and aid to save the Ukrainian people.  And I will welcome the Ukrainian refugees.  We should welcome them here with open arms if they need access. And we’re going to provide more support for Ukraine.  We’re going to continue to stand together with our Allies in Europe and send an unmistakable message: We will defend every single inch of NATO territory with the full might of a united and galvanized NATO. We will not fight a war against Russia in Ukraine.  Direct confrontation between NATO and Russia is World War Three, something we must strive to prevent.

President Biden: But we already know Putin’s war against Ukraine will never be a victory. He hoped to dominate Ukraine without a fight.  He failed. He hoped to fracture European resolve.  He failed. He hoped to weaken the transatlantic alliance.  He failed. He hoped to split apart American democracies, in terms of our positions.  He failed.

President Biden: And last night, to their great credit, the Congress passed a bipartisan spending bill that included an additional $13.6 billion in new assistance to the Ukrainian people.  And I look forward to signing that immediately.

President Biden: The American people are united.  The world is united.  And we stand with the people of Ukraine.  We will not let autocrats and would-be emperors dictate the direction of the world.

The video snip is 1 minute and 26 seconds long.

Democracies are rising to meet this moment, rallying the world to the side of peace and the side of security. We’re showing our strength, and we will not falter. May God bless all of you.  God bless Ukraine.  And God bless our troops.
