Has the U.S. taken the right actions following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine?

Russia’s recent invasion of Ukraine — marking the largest land war in Europe since World War II — has captured the attention of the world, leading to swift condemnations and historic economic sanctions imposed by the U.S. and other Western alliance countries. The United Nations General Assembly voted Thursday to demand that Russia stop its invasion of Ukraine, even as the assault continued with the continued destruction of multiple Ukrainian cities and mounting casualties, including civilians.

For its part, the U.S. has announced a number of economic sanctions and other restrictions on the Russian economy, as well as additional military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine. In his State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Joe Biden also announced that the U.S. is following Canada and the European Union in banning Russian planes from its airspace in retaliation for the invasion of Ukraine. He also said the Justice Department was launching a task force to go after crimes of Russian oligarchs, whom he called “corrupt leaders who have bilked billions of dollars off this violent regime.”
