President Biden on Tuesday challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin to “end the war” against Ukraine and warned that the U.S. and its allies around the world will continue to support Ukraine and push for new sanctions on the Kremlin.
Biden delivered that warning from Warsaw, Poland, nearly a year after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and a day after making a surprise visit to Ukraine.
“One year ago, the world was bracing for the fall of Kyiv,” Biden said. “Well, I just came from Kyiv and I can report Kyiv stands strong. Kyiv stands proud. Kyiv stands tall. And most importantly, Kyiv stands free.”
Biden stressed that a year after Putin’s invasion, NATO is “more united and more unified than ever before.”
