The United States and Canada have expressed readiness to continue the policy of introducing restrictions against Russia.
This was stated by US President Joe Biden during a joint press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Ottawa.
"We are going to keep pressure on Putin with the help of our historic sanctions and tariffs," the politician said.
At the same time, Biden indicated that the USA and Canada will continue to provide Ukraine with the military training, equipment and humanitarian aid it needs.
Biden also said that China has not yet provided Russia with weapons for its war in Ukraine.
“For the last three months, I have heard that China is going to provide a significant amount of weapons to Russia... They haven't done it yet, but that doesn't mean they won't. But they haven't done it yet," Biden said.
The United States said a few weeks ago that it had information about China's plans to provide lethal assistance to Russia in its aggression against Ukraine.
Meanwhile, a bipartisan group of senators appealed to US President Joe Biden to support the International Criminal Court and hand over evidence of war crimes committed by Russia in Ukraine.
This is reported by CNN.
They noted that the support of the international investigation is important so that Putin and his entourage understand that "responsibility for their crimes is approaching."
"Last year's bipartisan action by Congress to strengthen support for the ISS was done in cooperation with your administration to balance all perspectives on the U.S. relationship with the ISS. Yet, months later, as the ISS works to bring cases against Russian officials, including Putin himself, it is reported that the United States has not yet shared key evidence that could assist in this prosecution," the letter said.
It will be recalled that the International Criminal Court recently issued a warrant for Putin's arrest.
However, the United States has declared that it will not hand over evidence of war crimes committed by the Russian Federation in Ukraine to the International Criminal Court.
Nevertheless, the USA declared that they "have no doubt" that the Russian Federation committed such crimes.
