On the night of February 27, the leaders of the European Commission, Canada, the United States, France, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom announced that they were introducing a powerful new set of economic sanctions, including disconnecting some Russian banks from the payment system SWIFT. In response, the President of the Russian Federation said:

"Western countries commit not only unfriendly actions towards our country in economic terms, I mean illegitimate sanctions, but also allow aggressive statements against Russia".

After that, he gave the order to the Ministry defense put the Russian deterrence forces (nuclear) on high alert. US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield called Putin's decision an unacceptable escalation of the conflict:

"This means that the President of the Russian Federation continues to escalate the war in the most unacceptable way, and we are forced to continue to stop him in the most serious way&#34 ;.

According to Washington, Vladimir Putin is acting on the basis of non-existent threats.

"The United States believes that Russia has put the deterrence forces on alert based on threats that do not exist", the White House said .

White House press secretary Jen Psaki also commented on the situation:

"During this conflict, we have already observed this pattern of Putin's behavior. He creates non-existent threats to justify further aggression. The world community and US citizens should look at it through this prism".

Also NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg expressed concern over the decision of the Russian president. He stated that it was "dangerous rhetoric and irresponsible behavior on the part of Putin, which complements his aggressive actions and demonstrates how serious the standoff is due to Russia's unleashing a war in Ukraine".
