Russia sent a warning to the US Embassy in Moscow of “dangerous consequences” for “provocations near Russia’s borders” just one day after Joe Biden put Vladimir Putin on notice.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry handed a note of protest to the US warning of consequences just one day after Joe Biden “looked Putin in the eye” and warned him against invading neighboring Ukraine.
“The military activity of the United States and NATO member states along the perimeter of Russia’s border, including flights by combat aircraft and dangerous maneuvers by naval ships, continues to spiral upwards,” Kremlin spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement.

“The US military and its NATO allies have switched from attempts to test the system of our border protection to provocations against civilian aircraft, jeopardizing airspace safety and human lives. In connection with these provocative actions, the US embassy in Moscow was handed a note of protest on Wednesday, which warns of the dangerous consequences of such recklessness,” Zakharova said.
“The statement says that by retaining the right to respond in kind to the challenges from the United States and the US-led NATO members, Moscow calls for an in-depth dialogue on security guarantees and on ways to lower military and political tensions, including options to prevent collisions in the air and at sea.”
“Otherwise, we will deploy all the means at our disposal to prevent and remove the emerging threats,” she added.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden is going straight for appeasement and said he’s trying to “work out any accommodation” for Vladimir Putin.
"There were no minced words."
