On Monday President Joe Biden confirmed that Russia had launched a “hypersonic missile” at Ukraine, because Putin’s “back is against the wall.” Biden spoke just after the Kremlin claimed it had in fact used its missile to take out a Ukrainian weapons storage facility.

The Pentagon would not confirm the claim, but Biden said “they’re wreaking havoc on on the, on the Russian military, whether it’s their tanks or their helicopters or their aircraft.” ‘

“And if you notice, they’ve just launched their hypersonic missile, because it’s the only thing that they can get through without absolute certainty,” Biden said. “It’s, as you all know, it’s a consequential weapon, but with the same warhead on it as any other launched missile – it doesn’t make that much difference except it’s almost impossible to stop it. There’s a reason they’re using it.”

“And now Putin’s back is against the wall. He wasn’t anticipating the extent or strength of our unity. And the more his back is against the wall, the greater severity, the tactics he may employ” added Biden.

Biden spoke after a meeting with 16 CEOs to discuss energy, food and manufacturing. Leaders included those from ExxonMobil, Bank of America, ConocoPhillips, JP Morgan, Land O’Lakes, and Cargill Inc among others.

In the speech, Biden warned that Russia could bring about a cyber attack on targets in the U.S. “But look, today my administration issued a new warnings that based on evolving intelligence, Russia may be planning a cyber attack against us.”

“As I said, the magnitude of Russia’s cyber capacity is fairly consequential and it’s coming” he added. Biden did praise all American companies that made the decision to decrease business in Russia. “I’m pleased to see American companies stepping up and doing their part in what you’re doing in terms of donating to Ukraine, and winding down your operations without anybody requesting” he said.

    If Russia/Putin has such a ‘superior military’, then why can’t he beat Ukraine with conventional weapons?
    He knows he’s weak when it comes to strategy so he is left with excessive force and attacks on unarmed or inadequately armed Ukrainians.
    WHAT A COWARD!
