President Joe Biden addressed the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday in New York, slamming Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, according to Reuters, Agerpres read.
„A permanent member of the United Nations Security Council invaded its neighbors, tempted to erase the sovereign state from the map. Russia has shamelessly violated the core tenets of the United Nations charter. Ukraine has the same rights that belong to every sovereign nation. We will stand in solidarity with Ukraine. We will stand in solidarity against Russia’s aggression, period”, Biden said.
„Just today, President Putin has made overt nuclear threats against Europe in a reckless disregard for the responsibilities of the non-proliferation regime,” he said as world leaders convened at the UN’s New York headquarters.
„Now, Russia’s calling up more soldiers to join the fight. The Kremlin is organizing sham referenda, trying to annex parts of Ukraine, an extremely significant violation of the UN Charter,” he added.
