US President Joe Biden is on his way to Brussels for an important summit on the Ukraine war. He will be at NATO, European Union and G7 meetings on Thursday.
Biden again warned against Russia’s use of chemical weapons when he left the White House. “I think that’s a real threat,” he told media when asked about the likelihood of these weapons being used in Ukraine.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz personally warned Russian President Vladimir Putin against the use of chemical weapons, but no consequences were discussed.
A spokesman for the Chancellor said on Wednesday. Scholz and Putin have spoken by phone several times since the outbreak of the war.
