The President of the United States, Joe Biden, stated, during a speech at the UN General Assembly this Tuesday (19), that supporting Ukraine in its defense against Russia’s invasion is “not just an investment in Ukraine’s future, but in the future of each country” that values the UN’s basic rules of sovereignty and territoriality.
“We strongly support Ukraine in its efforts to reach a diplomatic resolution that provides just and lasting peace. Only Russia, only Russia, is responsible for this war. Only Russia has the power to end this war immediately,” Biden said.

“We must confront this blatant aggression today and deter other potential attackers tomorrow. That is why the United States, along with our allies and partners around the world, will continue to support the courageous people of Ukraine as they defend their sovereignty, territorial integrity, and freedom.”
