President Joe Biden has made international headlines for his car crash press conference where he seemingly gave Russian strongman Vladimir Putin the ‘green light’ to invade Ukraine.  

Biden was blasted on all fronts after after telling reporters that a ‘minor incursion’ into Ukraine by Moscow might elicit a lesser response than a full-scale invasion.  

Australian media branded the president’s comments a ‘gaffe’ that left officials scrambling to clarify their stance; British papers warned ‘failing Biden’ was ‘blaming everyone but himself’; Moscow media branded the US as ‘sick’; And French papers claimed Biden had ‘overestimated his capabilities’.  

The Kyiv Post accused Biden of ‘fraying raw nerves’ with his comments that suggested a Russian invasion was not only likely but ‘a fait accompli’ after the Kremlin spent recent months massing more than 100,000 troops on the border. 

The West Australia branded the president’s comments a ‘gaffe’ that sent the White House scrambling to ‘damage control’ – and forced Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to reassure citizens not to panic on national television. 

The world press also accused Biden of being ‘fragile’ because of his small majority in Congress and blasted the president for getting ‘bogged down’ as he marked the end to his first year in office.  

French newspaper Le Figaro featured the president on their front page saying he had left people ‘disappointed’ and that he had ‘overestimated his political capabilities’ – citing the ‘calamitous withdrawal from Afghanistan’ in late August.    

Chinese outlet Beijing Daily claimed Biden ‘has not done better than Donald Trump’ and said the president has left everyone saying ‘the United States is sick’. 

While in an article bizarrely titled ‘All is well, beautiful Kamala’, Russian site Kommersent described the press conference as Biden spending ‘two hours convincing the press that the first year of his president “exceeded expectations.”‘

Biden’s comments on Ukraine sparked much of the backlash in the international press amid rising fears of a Russian invasion which Western intelligence has said is expected ‘imminently’. 

The president on Wednesday said: ‘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 then we end up having a fight about what to do and not do, et cetera,

‘But if they actually do what they’re capable of doing with the forces amassed on the border, it is going to be a disaster for Russia if they further invade Ukraine.’

Top officials scrambled to clarify the White House position on Thursday, reiterating if ‘any assembled Russian units move across the Ukrainian border, that is an invasion’ and it would be met with a ‘severe and coordinated economic response.’  

But Biden was slammed in papers the world over for the bumbling remarks with the Japan Times accusing the president of ‘flustering his European partners’ and ‘triggering alarm in European capitals with his suggestion of divisions among allies’.

The Moscow Times, which touts itself as being ‘independent news from Russia’, seemingly mocked the president over the press conference, saying he ‘warns of disaster for Russia if they invade Ukraine’.   

Japanese journalists echoed the claim, accusing Biden of 'flustering his European partners' and 'triggering alarm in European capitals with his suggestion of divisions among allies'

French outlet La Croix ran a front page picture of Biden accusing him of getting ‘bogged down’ in the his first year and said the president was ‘fragile’ because of his ‘small majority in Congress’.  

French newspaper Le Figaro also featured the president on their front page saying he left his people ‘disappointed’ after his first year in office. 

The news outlet alleged Biden was an ‘unfortunate idealistic but clumsy Democratic president’ who has ‘overestimated his political capacities’.

The author cited his ‘calamitous withdrawal from Afghanistan’ and Biden’s ‘vagueness in the management of the Ukrainian file’. 

Meanwhile Kommersent, suggested that although Biden answered questions ‘in high spirits’ he refused to take responsibility for his failures, blaming them on his ‘predecessor, media bias, unreliable public opinion polls and the pandemic’.

The outlet also claimed reporters who attended the presser ‘experienced an attack of deja vu’ when they heard Biden’s remarks. 

Beijing Daily slammed Biden’s presidency claiming his first year in office has everyone saying ‘the United States is sick’.

‘Joe Biden has not done better than Donald Trump,’ the newspaper asserted.

The outlet claims he failed to ‘heal a divided society,’ as he promised following last year’s riot at the US Capitol and noted how Biden blasted Trump for his ‘failure’ 16 times during his keynote speech.

Others global outlets mirrored the sentiment, saying Biden enters his second year in office ‘with unmet priorities’ and that the ‘next three years are likely to be even harder’.

The Sydney Morning Herald alleged that Biden's commentary on Russia left the White House on damage control, needing to scramble to clarify what he meant
