President of Ukraine disputes Biden's 'minor incursions' comment

During his first official press conference of the year on Wednesday, President Biden muddled his reply to a question regarding the U.S. response to a Russian-led invasion of Ukraine: "Russia will be held accountable if it invades, and it depends on what it does," the president said, per Politico.

"It's one thing if it's a minor incursion, and then we end up having a fight about what to do and not do, et cetera," he added. "But if they actually do what they're capable of doing with the force amassed on the border, it is going to be a disaster for Russia."
