US President Joe Biden has said that Vladimir Putin is “stuck in a dead-end” and that this has raised concerns about the use of chemical or biological weapons.
Speaking at a business conference in Washington DC on Monday, he said he believed Russia was preparing for new “False Flag” operations.
“I also say that Ukraine has chemical and biological weapons,” Biden said. This is a clear indication that they are also thinking of using them. ”
It should be noted that the United States and its allies have repeatedly said that Russia could claim the presence of these weapons in Ukraine in order to justify the use of chemical and biological weapons.
Ukraine’s armed forces, meanwhile, say Russian forces have seized a “land route” to the Crimean peninsula, cutting Ukraine off the Sea of Azov.
However, the Ukrainian military has said that the Russian military’s “offensive intensity” has decreased and that it is forced to call in more troops from Russia.
Zelensky’s Resumption Of Talks
Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has said his country is ready to negotiate with Vladimir Putin in “any format” to end the war.
According to the AFP news agency, he hinted that the status of the Russian-occupied Crimea and the rebel-held provinces of Donetsk and Luhansk could also be discussed.
However, he acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat Eliasson’s government.
Zelensky recently said he would like to meet with Vladimir Putin because, according to him, “I believe that without this meeting, it is impossible to know what he can do to stop the war.”
However, according to the BBC’s main correspondent for international affairs, Liz Dossett, Turkish and Israeli officials seeking mediation between the two countries have stated that there is currently no possibility of a bilateral meeting between Zelensky and Putin.
