U.S. President Joe Biden says he is prepared to impose personal sanctions on Russian President Vladimir Putin if his country invades Ukraine.
Biden said the repercussions would be felt worldwide.
"There will be enormous consequences if you were to go in and invade, as he could, the entire country for Russia not only in terms of economic consequences and political consequences but there will be enormous consequences worldwide. This would be the largest, if he were to move in, with all those forces, it would be the largest invasion since World War II. It would change the world."
In response, Moscow said it was the U.S. and NATO that has flooded Ukraine with weapons and Western advisers.
Russia's permanent mission to the United Nations said in a statement that the U.S. was cultivating anti-Russian feelings with talk of the buildup of troops while forgetting to clarify that those troops were on its territory.
