President Joe Biden has said that the U.S. will not go to war with Russia.
“We’re going to continue to stand together with our allies in Europe and send an unmistakable message. We will defend every single inch of NATO territory with the full might of the united and galvanized NATO,” Biden said on Friday. “We will not fight a war against Russia in Ukraine. Direct conflict between NATO and Russia is World War III, something we must strive to prevent.”
Biden in 2022: "Putin’s latest attack on Ukraine was premeditated and unprovoked."
Biden in 1997: The only thing that could provoke a "vigorous and hostile reaction" in Russia would be the expansion of NATO into eastern Europe. "If there was ever anything… it would be that." pic.twitter.com/JGbqhajq87

The White House said the US has no intention of sending American forces into Ukraine to fight Russia.
“The President and our NATO partners have not changed their assessment about their plans to send U.S. troops in,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki. There have been reports that Russia could be setting up a chemical weapons attack.
Russia is still advancing into the center of Ukraine and all talks for a ceasefire have broken down.
