  • Biden sanctions Russia for beginning invasion of Ukraine: live updates


  • Biden announced sanctions that will hit the Russian economy after Putin started an invasion of Ukraine.
  • Russia’s parliament gave Putin permission to use military force outside the country.
  • German chancellor says the government will ‘reassess’ certification of Nord Stream 2.

President Joe Biden said Russia’s actions in Ukraine will trigger massive sanctions, a response he has been threatening for weeks as President Vladimir Putin built up troops on Ukraine’s borders. He said the Russian leader had flagrantly violated international law. 

Putin on Tuesday received authorization from the upper chamber of parliament to use Russian troops outside of the country. He told reporters this was necessary to formalize the military’s deployment in two rebel regions of eastern Ukraine, which Russia recognized as independent on Monday.

Biden says Russia “will pay an even steeper price” if continues aggressions.

“There’s not question Russia is the aggressor,” Biden said. “Whatever Russia does next, we’re ready to respond.”
