is looking to build momentum heading into a highly anticipated meeting with Russian President

on Wednesday.

Biden has spent the last few days rallying allies in the Group of Seven (G-7) and NATO around the need to confront Russia and meeting privately with foreign leaders to gauge how he should approach his one-on-one with Putin.

“I shared with our allies what I’ll convey to President Putin: That I’m not looking for conflict with Russia, but that we will respond if Russia continues its harmful activities and that we will not fail to defend the trans-Atlantic alliance or stand up for democratic values,” Biden said at a press conference on Monday, warning that Moscow is seeking to “drive a wedge” among NATO members.

The president was otherwise tight-lipped about his strategy heading into Wednesday’s meeting, saying it would be unwise to disclose to the press how he planned to approach Putin.
