President Joe Biden did not answer questions on Monday from reporters when they attempted to ask him about the Russia-Ukraine crisis.
Biden returned to the White House on Monday after spending the weekend back home in Delaware, where he was met with questions about the ongoing war in Ukraine.
REPORTER 1: “Mr. President, is Ukraine winning the war?”
REPORTER 2: “Mr. President, do you believe Putin will use nuclear weapons?”
REPORTER 1: “Mr. President, are you worried about nuclear war?”
In the meantime, Ukrainian and Russian officials arrived at the Ukraine-Belarus border on Monday to begin “peace talks.”
Ukraine’s Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov is leading the delegation to the peace talks in the Gomel region.
“The Biden administration announced Monday morning that Russia’s central bank will be prohibited from undertaking transactions in dollars under a new concerted effort by the U.S. and its allies, a move that is set to accelerate Russia’s economic tailspin,” Axios reported.
The German government also announced it will provide weapons including anti-tank missiles to Ukraine as its forces continue to battle against Russian troops.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz made the decision on Saturday, in what was a historic shift away from the decades-old policy of never sending weapons to active conflicts.
