Biden Warns: US Will Respond If Russia Uses Chemical Weapons

US President Joe Biden has declared that the US will take action if Russia uses chemical weapons in Ukraine.

Biden who is in Europe for talks with allies, did not explain out what sort of action he was referring to, though his comments did echo those of UK prime minister Boris Johnson.

His comments also came just as President Zelenskyy made an address to NATO leaders accusing Russia of using phosphorus bombs in Ukraine.

BBC reports: .Asked whether the use of chemical weapons by Russia’s Vladimir Putin would prompt a military response from Nato, Mr Biden replied that it “would trigger a response in kind”.

“We would respond if he uses it. The nature of the response would depend on the nature of the use,” he said.

Western nations have warned Russia could be preparing to use chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine, as its invasion of the country enters its fifth week.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said it would be “catastrophic” if Mr Putin used chemical weapons, while Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has made it clear it would result in severe consequences.

The White House has set up a national security team to look at how the US and allies should react if Russia launched a chemical attack. But there is no suggestion Nato would respond by using chemical weapons, says BBC US Editor Sarah Smith.

Mr Biden has previously stressed the US and Nato would not send troops to Ukraine over fears of a direct military confrontation with Russia.

The president was speaking after an emergency meeting of Nato leaders to debate how to respond to the possible use of weapons of mass destruction, as well as military aid for Ukraine and tougher sanctions on Moscow.

“The single most important thing is for us to stay united,” the president said after the summit.


  1. PROPAGANDA still in algorithmical over drive 3 DOG night has a better chance at a chart topper than WW3rd will ever have

  2. Always with tbe perversity. The protagonist who triggered the whole event with his chemical labs now claiming the respondents position. “and the one thing God Hates above ALL abominations and sins is the Hypocrites” The Bible.

  3. A parallel of what Trump did for the terrorists in Syria.. gave them the green-light to fake a chemical weapons attack. All entirely debunked but not until after the “beautiful” missiles flew. It’s remarkable the sort of mesmerism that follows any claim of chemical weapons use. OH the humanity! But really is it any worse than being blown to pieces, burned alive or just machine-gunned from a helicopter a mile away.

  4. Just more antagonist algorithms of PROPAGANDA in a pre set preplanned DMZ brother country of russia-The placement of the NEO baby hitler in the UKRAINE was the last straw for putin as about every russian alive still hates the nazis and the antagonist baby hitler was placed right near by to the russian mother land NO wonder putin gave in to the people of russia wanting the nazis on thier broaders gone.ALL preplanned by the west the place the time the DMZ post NUNN-lugar.A attempt at unseating the head of the WTO but it is failing as the world goes foodless and gas less

  5. Longest pre-planned stall calling out the baby hilter but the baby hitler hid behind us hopeing we would take his bullet.GROUND WARS with BOOTs don`t use GAS as they would also be gassing them selfs BIDen is DUM DUM

  6. If the US thinks it can continually transgress against Russia until Moscow gives in, it is gravely mistaken
    Suffice to say, though children are at play, this is not a game.

    Those who have been toying with outright war against Russia, and an escalation of the conflict in Syria, are putting the lives of all Americans at risk.

    Of course, the threat of nuclear annihilation has been with us since the earliest days of the Cold War, but Russia has now positioned itself with the largest and most destructive nuclear arsenal of any country in the world.

    Economist and political critic Dr. Paul Craig Roberts explains how diplomatic relations have broken between Russia and the United States, after the U.S. knowingly attacked pro-Assad Syria forces… that, of course, was the cherry on top of a host of insults, deliberate antagonism and a strategy that could only result in further chaos and war.
