US Vice President Joe Biden has questioned Russia’s commitment to peace, urging President Vladimir Putin to show by actions that he desires a political resolution to the conflict in Ukraine.

“Given Russia’s recent history, we need to judge its deeds not its words. Don’t tell us, show us, President Putin,” Biden told a global security conference Saturday in Munich, Germany.

The vice president made the comments shortly after President Putin indicated that he did not want war.

Biden stopped short of indicating that Washington would send in lethal weaponry to shore up the Ukrainian army, but he insisted Kiev had the right to defend itself.

“Too many times President Putin has promised peace and delivered tanks and troops and weapons,” he said. “So we will continue to provide Ukraine with security assistance. Not to encourage war but to allow Ukraine to defend itself.”

The vice president said the White House did not believe there was a military solution to the Ukrainian conflict. “But let me be equally clear: We do not believe Russia has the right to do what they’re doing,” he told the Munich conference.

Russia’s ‘little green men’ in Ukraine

On Friday, Biden accused Moscow of sending unmarked soldiers and military equipment into Ukraine in support of the pro-Russian forces operating in the volatile east.

“Russia continues to escalate the conflict by sending mercenaries and tanks and, as we euphemistically say in the United States, little green men without patches, who are very sophisticated, special-operations soldiers,” he said at the European Union headquarters in Brussels.

“President Putin continues to call for new peace plans as his troops roll through the Ukrainian countryside,” he added.

Washington is considering providing Ukrainian forces with lethal weapons, according to US officials.

The New York Times reported on Sunday that Secretary of State John Kerry and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey were open to discuss sending arms to Ukraine.

Russia warns against lethal arms 

Russia has warned the US against sending weapons to Ukraine, saying the move would cause “colossal damage” to ties between the two countries.

“Without a doubt, if such a decision is realized, it will cause colossal damage to US-Russian relations, especially if the residents of Donbass (Donetsk and Lugansk regions) start to be killed by American weapons,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Alexander Lukashevich, said on Thursday.

Ties between Washington and Moscow deteriorated last year after pro-Western forces ousted Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych in February 2014.

The United States and the European Union have imposed several rounds of sanctions on Russia, including visa bans and asset freezes over the crisis in Ukraine.

    I think most of us just want to go ballistic on this buffoon, but of course we will all try to maintain our blood pressure (for the moment). Biden is such a stool pigeon for the Cabal. Biden is an embarrassment to anything that resembles goodness and decency and it certainly plays itself out now.

    So said, Biden, the warmonger terrorist in sheep’s clothing.

  3. Ukraine is considered Europe’s “bread basket” for its rich, massive agricultural lands. Agribusiness and energy resources in Ukraine are absent from any mainstream media narratives:

  4. Mr Biden wants WAR, Mr Putin wants PEACE. You are trying to goad Mr Putin into a war situation, this is what your paymasters want. We in Europe do not want your war. How many more American lives do you want to wipe out, its heartbreaking to see them return in boxes from Wars you and your like instigate.This is 2015, we have moved on, we are not so easily taken in by your like anymore.
