Speaking to leaders of Pacific island nations, Biden denounced referendums organized by pro-Russian authorities in regions of Ukraine, which he called “a total fraud” and claimed the results were “orchestrated by Moscow.”

The United States is working with its allies on sanctions to be imposed once Russia formally announces its annexation of Ukrainian regions, which is expected on Friday.

“The US, I want to be very clear about this, the US will never, ever, ever recognize Russian claims to sovereign territory in Ukraine,” President Biden said emphatically.

The sanctions will target “persons and entities, inside and outside of Russia, who provide support for this action,” the White House said.

“Russia’s attack on Ukraine, in pursuit of imperial ambitions, is a flagrant violation of the UN Charter and the basic principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity,” noted the president of the United States.
