These warnings come as a response to the “unprecedented economic costs we’ve imposed on Russia alongside our allies and partners”. Biden is referring to the multiple sanction the U.S. and other countries have imposed on Russia to deter their invasion on Ukraine. Despite not participating direct military conflict there still is the risk that Russia may retaliate in other ways, namely via cyber warfare.
