US President Joe Biden, at a meeting with representatives of big business on March 21, confirmed that the Russian army used hypersonic weapons in Ukraine and may be preparing to use chemical and biological weapons. Transcript of his speech published on the White House website.
The Russian Federation said it used hypersonic aeroballistic missiles of the Kinzhal complex during an attack on an underground military ammunition depot in the Ivano-Frankivsk region.
Biden said that hypersonic missiles – the only thing they can do with is “with absolute certainty”. Such missiles, according to the President of the United States, are not particularly different from other missiles, “except that they are practically unstoppable.”
“There’s a reason why they use them. Putin has his back against the wall. He didn’t foresee the extent or strength of our unity. And the more his back against the wall, the harsher his tactics,” says the President of the United States.
Biden pointed out that Putin has already carried out many false flag operations, that is, using provocations and trying to blame someone else.
“Whenever he starts talking about something that he thinks NATO, Ukraine or the United States are going to do, it means that he is preparing to do it. This is not a joke, the President of the United States said. – So he’s backed up against the wall. And he’s now talking about new “false flags,” including claims that we in America have biological weapons, as well as chemical weapons in Europe. I guarantee you that it does not correspond to reality. They also speculate that Ukraine has biological and chemical weapons.”
Biden believes this is a “clear sign” that Putin is considering using both of these weapons in Ukraine.
The US President drew attention to the fact that Putin has already used chemical weapons in the past.
“We have to be careful … He knows that there will be serious consequences because of the NATO united front, but the fact is that it is real,” Biden said.
