    A poll conducted on March 18, 2022 found that only 16 percent of those polled had “quite a bit of confidence,” and 71 % had “just some” or “very little” confidence in Biden's handling of the post-Cold War nuclear-armed Russia.

    This poll was released on the same day that Biden was seen to call for changes to the government in Russia ,which is equipped with long range nuclear missiles.

    “For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power,” Biden declared at the conclusion of his March 26 Warsaw speech, in reference to the Russian president Vladimir Putin. Biden is already offering assistance and military advice for Ukraine's troops which includes long-range missiles that have killed a number of Russians.

    The statement was met with disgust from Richard Haass, the head of the top Council on Foreign Affairs.

    “The comments by @potus made a difficult situation more difficult and a dangerous situation more dangerous,” Haass tweeted on March 26. He added:

    “This is clear. It isn't as clear how to repair the damage. I suggest his most senior advisors get in touch with their counterparts to communicate to them that they are in the US and are ready to take on this Russian government.”

    “The White House walk back of @POTUS regime change call is unlikely to wash,” Hass tweeted. “Putin will see it as confirmation of what he's believed all along. Bad lapse in discipline that runs [the] risk of extending the scope and duration of the war.”

    Additional historical writers, experts, as well as left-wing activists, have also criticized Biden's threat of regime change against nuclear-armed Russia.

    A Biden ally, an ex- CIA Official, David Priess, acknowledged the announcement as a radical change.

    The Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, spoke of the government's views on the financial and military assistance provided by the United States and Europe to the Ukraine government. “A real hybrid war, total war was declared on us,” Lavrov stated in his statement, adding that the objective of the war is “to destroy, break, annihilate, strangle the Russian economy, and Russia on the whole.”

    Biden's deputy aides attempted to fix the damage done by the president.

    “We do not have a strategy of regime change in Russia or anywhere else, for that matter. In this case, as in any case, it's up to the people of the country in question. It's up to the Russian people,” Secretary of State Tony Blinken later said during a press conference in Jerusalem.

    On Sunday evening, Biden told reporters in Washington, DC, that he was not advocating changes to the regime.

    The risk of nuclear war was made more acute by Ukraine, who announced it would not accept any territorial deal.

    Russia began the war, partially, to segregate two provinces with a majority Russian population, as well as the Crimean peninsula, which is part of Ukraine.

    “There are no independent republics on the territory of Ukraine … Russia illegally occupied Crimea and part of Donetsk and Luhansk,” the Ukrainian ambassador to the United States said March 27, during the NBC program, Meet the Press.

    “I think we shouldn't ask Ukraine what we are ready to give up in order for Russia to stop this aggression,” the ambassador added.

    Ukraine and its allies from Washington supported Biden's threats against Putin.

    Alexander Vindman, a Ukrainian immigrant and an ex- White House official who helped the Democrats impeach former president Donald Trump, said Biden's speech was “historical,” like “Kennedy's Berlin Speech.”

    Neocon leader Bill Kistrol also cheered Biden's threat, making a comparison between it to Ronald Reagan's “tear down this wall” speech.

    A few progressives hope to increase the power of their own country within the United States if Putin loses the conflict. “If Putin loses, it'll be a success for the globalist order — sanctions and aid to Ukraine will represent a triumph of international cooperation,” said progressive author Noah Smith, who advocates open borders.
