On Thursday, US President Joe Biden called on his citizens to leave Ukraine Immediately, warning of a possible major conflict with Moscow in the event of a confrontation on the ground between US and Russian forces.

In an interview with NBC News, he said, “American citizens should leave. They should leave now.”

“We are dealing with one of the largest armies in the world,” Biden added, referring to the Russian military, stressing that “this is a very different situation, and things can quickly get crazy.”

He reiterated that under no circumstances would he send troops to the field in Ukraine, even to evacuate Americans in the event of a Russian invasion of the country.

Biden said it would be “a world war when the Americans and the Russians start shooting at each other. We are in a very different world” than it was before.

Western leaders have been warning for weeks that Russia is preparing to escalate the eight-year conflict in eastern Ukraine after massing about 100,000 troops around the former Soviet state.

Russia and Belarus launched joint military exercises on Thursday that raised tension and made a breakthrough in diplomatic efforts by NATO leaders to prevent an invasion of Ukraine.
