Biden: Ukraine will never, never be a victory for Putin

Ukraine will never, never be a victory for Putin, U.S. President Biden told journalists ahead of bilateral meeting with President of Colombia Iván Duque on Thursday.

“And the United States and the people around the world are going to continue to support the Ukrainian people, I believe, as they defend their country.  Ukraine will never, never be a victory for Putin,” Biden said, the White House informs.

The U.S. leader thanked Colombia for "immediately condemning Russia’s unjustifiable invasion the atrocities they are committing in Ukraine, and calling for the withdrawal of Russian troops."

Biden called the war unleashed by Russia “not just a threat to Europe and Ukraine, but it’s a threat to the international peace and stability.” 

“The American people and the entire world have rallied to support the Ukrainian people.  We have donated, thus far, a billion dollars in security assistance and more shipments of defensive equipment are on the way as I speak.  We’re coordinating deliveries of anti-armor and anti-air capabilities with a wide range of our allies and — and partners, and we’re providing tens of thousands of tons of humanitarian needs, from food, water, and medicine,” Biden noted.

The U.S. President also reminded that the economic sanctions were crippling the Russian economy right now. 

“The ruble has lost half its value.  It now would take literally almost 200 rubles to equal $1 because of how it’s been so damaging…  We cut off U.S. imports of Russian oil and gas, targeting the main artery of Russia’s economy,” he noted. 

As reported, U.S. President Joe Biden announced that the United States banned Russian oil and gas imports.
