President Biden reportedly said he’s concerned that Russian President Vladimir Putin doesn’t have a way of getting out of this war in Ukraine, which has endured 76 days and is still counting.

According to Reuters, Biden gave these remarks Monday while speaking at a political fundraiser in the Washington, D.C., area.

Biden said Putin “doesn’t have a way out right now, and I’m trying to figure out what we do about that,” the news agency reported.

Biden also portrayed Putin as a calculating man who wrongly believed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine would lead to the downfall of NATO and the European Union, it added.

The remarks come as Biden pressed Congress to “immediately” pass an “urgent” $33 billion proposal to provide military, economic and humanitarian aid to Ukraine while saying he is “prepared to accept” that measure and a COVID-19 funding package will “move separately” so that the Ukrainian aid bill can get to his desk “right away.”

“The plan was substantial in size, because the need is substantial: We must stand by Ukraine as it defends itself from Russian aggression,” Biden said. “The need is also urgent: I have nearly exhausted the resources given to me by a bipartisan majority in Congress to support Ukraine’s fighters.”

The emergency supplemental funding bill for Ukraine includes $20.4 billion in additional security assistance, including $5 billion in additional drawdown authority, $6 billion for the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, and $4 billion for the State Department’s Foreign Military Financing program.

The appeal came after the Biden Administration, in April, announced another $800 million in military aid for Ukraine, including heavy artillery and ammunition, as the country continues to fight to guard itself against Russia’s multi-front war. That funding was in addition to the approval of $800 million in weapons, ammunition, and other security assistance earlier this month.

In his Red Square address to Russian troops - and the Russian nation - the Kremlin leader echoed his frequently voiced justification for invading Ukraine: a claim that appears to blame everyone but Russia for what’s occurring.

He criticized (as usual) America, NATO, and the government in Kyiv, claiming that their actions had put the security of Russia itself in danger. He made citations (as usual) to “neo-Nazis” in Ukraine. We hear that a lot from Russian officials, who usually voice the baseless claim that Ukraine has been overrun by fascists, ultra-nationalists, and Nazi sympathizers.

President Putin revealed that Russia had suffered military losses, but he provided no details. The last official figures released by Russia’s defense ministry were 1,351 Russian soldiers killed. But that was six weeks ago. There has been no update since.
