Joe Biden: US President’s gaffe appears to allow Russian ‘minor incursion’ in Ukraine

The White House scrambled to correct one of President Joe Biden’s gaffes on Wednesday after he suggested Russia would not face sanctions over a “minor incursion” into Ukraine. Press Secretary Jen Psaki said any Russian military campaign would be met with a “swift, severe and united response” amid mounting fears of an invasion. “President Biden has been clear with the Russian President: If any Russian military forces move across the Ukrainian border, that’s a renewed invasion, and it will be met with a swift, severe, and united response from the United States and our Allies,” Ms Psaki said in a statement.

Enormous ‘Twilight Zone’ coral reef discovered off the coast of Tahiti

A “magical” coral reef stretching as far as the eye can see has been discovered off the coast of the South Pacific island Tahiti. The beautiful reef took around 25 years to grow and was found in the "twilight zone", where it is highly unusual to unearth such a find as there is barely enough light to sustain life. "It was magical to witness giant, beautiful rose corals which stretch for as far as the eye can see. It was like a work of art," said French photographer Alexis Rosenfeld, who led the team of international divers that made the discovery. The acres of giant corals in pristine condition show no sign of being damaged by climate change and demonstrate just how little we know about the ocean, according to experts. They say it shows the need to protect the world’s remaining healthy reefs from environmental damage.

Biden gaffe: US President appears to allow Russian ‘minor incursion’ in Ukraine

It was 28 minutes into Joe Biden's press conference when the gaffe came - and it was a jaw-dropper. Especially if you were watching in Kyiv or the Kremlin. The US President appeared to say that, if Vladimir Putin were to make only a "minor incursion" into Ukraine, then Russia would not face devastating sanctions. His exact words were: "Russia will be held accountable if it invades. And it depends on what it does. It's one thing if it's a minor incursion and we (in Nato) end up having to fight about what to do and what to not do, etcetera. "But if they actually do what they're capable of doing, it is going to be a disaster for Russia if they further invade Ukraine." The comment whizzed around the world and, as the implications of what he had said sank in, a journalist read it back to him. Was Mr Biden giving "permission" for a "minor incursion" by Russia into Ukraine, the journalist asked. Mr Biden laughed and said: "Good question. It did sound (like) that, didn't it..."
