President Joe Biden is set to address the American people as Russia continues its attack on Ukraine.
Russia launched an invasion against neighboring Ukraine on Thursday using land, air and naval forces. In the capital of Kyiv, air raid sirens have sounded and a stay-at-home order has been issued. Western countries are expected to impose unprecedented economic sanctions on Russia imminently. Biden is expected to unveil new consequences for Russia.
Earlier on Thursday, Biden convened a meeting of the National Security Council followed by a virtual meeting with G-7 leaders. On the heels of the Russian assault, the president spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and reaffirmed U.S. and NATO ally support.
