President Biden of the United States has once again advised Americans living in Ukraine to leave the country.
In an interview with NBC News, he expressed concern that the situation in Ukraine might swiftly spin out of hand.
"Citizens of the United States must go, and they must leave immediately."
"It is a very different environment, and things may swiftly spiral out of control."
On Monday, Vice President Joe Biden said that Americans would be prudent to depart.
Biden expresses concern about the possibility of a Russian invasion of Ukraine. In such a scenario, it is improbable that American troops will be able to assist in the evacuation of their fellow citizens.
Mr. Biden said that he is not aware of any circumstance that would motivate him to send soldiers to rescue Americans who are leaving their homeland.
"If America and Russia start shooting at each other, it would mean a world war. The world looks different than it ever has," Biden said. "We are not dealing here with a terrorist organization, but with one of the largest military forces in the world."
The State Department issued a warning yesterday, stating that in the case of Russian military action anywhere in Ukraine, the United States would not be able to evacuate its residents and nationals.
In addition, the ministry cautioned that, in the event of a Russian invasion, the traditional path for evacuating citizens via the American embassy would be more difficult to navigate.
Biden said that when Russian President Putin is foolish enough to invade Ukraine, he is smart enough not to do anything that would negatively affect American citizens.
He added that he did not explicitly tell Putin that Americans are a border that Russians cannot cross.
