The US president is aware that he will have to make certain decisions regarding the war between Russia and Ukraine. Joe Biden has consistently maintained that Ukrainians must not target Russian military objectives with American weapons. 

However, Volodymyr Zelenskyy has requested America to carefully consider their next steps, hoping for American approval. 

According to The New York Times, the White House has begun assessing whether it is indeed worthwhile to allow Ukraine to target Russian objectives with American weapons. 

Joe Biden, along with his advisors, is trying to find the best solution, aware that every move could have concrete consequences. The US president, however, does not want Russia to dominate Ukraine, as it could lead to catastrophic consequences. Analysts believe that even if Biden changes his mind, Ukrainians will be somewhat restricted in using American weapons. 

An attack with American weapons would focus on military targets within Russia's borders, from where they are attacking Ukraine. The American leadership does not want to see a scenario in which Ukrainian forces attack Russian positions deep within Russian territory. Interestingly, analysts and experts expect that even if Biden makes such a decision, it will not be publicly discussed, but rather Ukrainians will simply commence the operation.

There is immense pressure now on the American president, who must make an unpopular decision. Regardless of his choice, criticism is sure to follow from one side or another. Looking at the global picture, it seems that the majority of the planet supports Ukraine, believing they have the right to defend themselves and take such actions. 

However, the most crucial voices are those of the leaders of major countries, who will have a say in the whole matter. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin will not sit quietly and ignore such talk, prepared to respond. The truth of this is evident in statements from the Russian leader, who has emphasized that serious consequences will follow if Americans allow such actions by Ukrainians. Key political figures in America have reacted to these discussions, and White House national security spokesman John Kirby has emphasized that the US still has no plans to change its policy regarding the war in Ukraine.

Vladimir Putin: In Europe, especially in small countries, they should be aware of what they are playing with

Vladimir Putin particularly warns small European countries that support Ukraine about the consequences they could face. There are many such countries that have been supporting Ukraine in every possible way since the beginning of the war. If they continue with such a policy, Putin warns them of the danger they are facing.

"In Europe, especially in small countries, they should be aware of what they are playing with," Vladimir Putin said, as quoted by BBC.

"Many European countries had small territory and a dense population."

Although they do not consider Ukraine's attacks on Russia a completely logical option, and they should not provoke consequences for their allies, the Russian president warns that the use of Western weapons in an attack on Russia is something this country will not accept.

"The responsibility for any strikes inside our country's territory would lie with Western arms suppliers, even if Ukraine's forces carried out the strikes," stated the Russian leader.

His threats have not gone unnoticed among key political figures in Europe who believe caution should be exercised in the coming period and not to attack Russian targets in that country. Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni believes that the focus should be on Ukraine's air defense rather than on attacking Russia. 

Zelenskyy has been seeking assistance for months regarding air defense, considering it a crucial component of the war and a way in which Russians gain a significant advantage. 

It seems that the greatest support for Ukraine since the beginning of the war has come from the US, which has been supplying this country with large quantities of weapons from the outset, which has certainly been crucial in defending this country. Americans intend to continue with the same policy, believing that Ukraine has the strength and courage to stand up to Russia.

Vladimir Putin messages

Vladimir Putin has sent warning messages that Western countries must take seriously. Since the beginning of the war, there has been immense fear of the actions of the Russian leader. His long-held beliefs have not been widely accepted. The invasion of Ukraine has shown in the best possible way that Putin stops at nothing when he wants to achieve his goal. Despite warnings from major powers, Russia has maintained the same philosophy since the beginning of the war, ready to conquer territory in Ukraine.

Western countries are cautious, fearing that history may repeat itself, but this time with even more catastrophic consequences. This is one reason why things are being extensively analyzed, with the intention of making the right decisions. If the situation in Ukraine requires radical measures, we have no doubt that Europe and the world will react.
