Biden says Putin considering using chemical weapons in Ukraine
US President Joe Biden says that Russia is considering using chemical weapons in Ukraine.
Putin’s “back is against the wall and now he’s talking about new false flags he’s setting up including, asserting that we in America have biological as well as chemical weapons in Europe, simply not true,” Reuters quotes Biden as saying at a Business Roundtable event.
“They are also suggesting that Ukraine has biological and chemical weapons in Ukraine. That’s a clear sign he’s considering using both of those,” Biden says.
Biden did not offer proof.
