Morrison was hopeful that the Chinese government would “join” other nations around the world in denouncing actions by Russia.

US President Joe Biden has described the ongoing situation around Ukraine as “the beginning of a Russian invasion” but he says there is still time for diplomacy.

Biden says America will sanction Russian oligarchs in retaliation for the country’s action against Ukraine, while also warning of further measures if a full-scale war does break out.

According to the president, the sanctions on Russia will be “far beyond” anything ever imposed in the past.

Biden says this is “the beginning of a Russian invasion of Ukraine” as he announced harsh new sanctions to punish Moscow.
