Biden Says US Forced EU Countries to Impose Sanctions Against Russia (RIA Novosti)
“EU-sancties tegen Rusland waren onder VS-dwang” (De Morgen)
The video showing Biden tell this is here.

The transcript of Biden’s speech can be read on the site of the White House.

Throughout we’ve given Putin a simple choice:  Respect Ukraine’s sovereignty or face increasing consequences.  That has allowed us to rally the world’s major developed countries to impose real cost on Russia.

It is true they did not want to do that.  But again, it was America’s leadership and the President of the United States insisting, oft times almost having to embarrass Europe to stand up and take economic hits to impose costs.  And the results have been massive capital flight from Russia, a virtual freeze on foreign direct investment, a ruble at an all-time low against the dollar, and the Russian economy teetering on the brink of recession.

The full length of the speech of Biden can be seen here. He starts talking about Ukraine at minute 32:00
