Joe Biden is ‘speaking from a position of strength’ with sanctions against Russia

US Studies Centre CEO Simon Jackman says the sanctions President Joe Biden has placed against Russia are a “big contrast to the Trump administration”. Mr Jackman said the Trump administration was often “tiptoeing around its relationship with the Russians” as was evident in the 2016 “interference work by the Russians” and President Biden is highlighting this. “Biden [is] not shying away from it at all and indeed speaking from a position of strength, ‘I could have done more but I didn’t’, reminding the world and Russia in particular that the US has plenty of capability and a wide variety of tools,” he told Sky News. “The Russian economy is particularly vulnerable and those sanction, particularly the direction to US financial institutions not to trade in Russian state-issued debt after June 15 [is] just showing the breadth of tools available.”
