President Joe Biden delivers an update on the situation in Russia and Ukraine and the U.S. response, the White House said.

The speech will be Biden’s third such address in a week, and it comes just hours after Russia’s parliament voted Tuesday to give President Vladimir Putin sweeping authority to deploy troops abroad.

On Monday, Putin ordered troops into two breakaway regions of eastern Ukraine after announcing that he would recognize their independence.

U.K. Health Minister Sajid Javid said Tuesday that “the invasion of Ukraine has begun.”

Biden has not yet used the word “invasion” himself to describe the current activity.
