Biden urges Europe to stand up for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity

Standing up for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine remains a vital concern for Europe and the United States in order to protect the Western model of democracy and transatlantic unity.

“Putin seeks to weaken European project and our NATO Alliance. He wants to undermine the transatlantic unity and our resolve, because it’s so much easier for the Kremlin to bully and threaten individual states than it is to negotiate with a strong and closely united transatlantic community. That’s why — that’s why standing up for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine remains a vital concern for Europe and the United States,” U.S. President Joe Biden said at the 2021 Virtual Munich Security Conference on Friday.

Biden also added that addressing Russian recklessness and hacking into computer networks, in the United States and across Europe and the world, “has become critical to protecting our collective security.”

“The Kremlin attacks our democracies and weaponizes corruption to try to undermine our system of governance,” the U.S. President said.

He added that Russian leaders want to convince their people that Western countries are more corrupt or as corrupt as their leadership, but the world, including Russia’s own citizens, knows that isn’t true.

Biden emphasized that the United States returned to global leadership and that NATO remained a strong foundation for defending the interests of the entire democratic world.
