Biden reacts to missile strike on Kremenchuk: Attack on civilians at shopping mall is cruel

U.S. President Joe Biden has condemned the Russian missile strike on a shopping mall in Kremenchuk.

“Russia's attack on civilians at a shopping mall is cruel. We stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people,” Biden posted on Twitter on Monday.

He added that the U.S. along with its allies and partners would continue to hold Russia accountable for such atrocities and support Ukraine’s defense.

In a series of other tweets, the U.S. president stressed that it was impossible to turn a blind eye to Putin's war for the sake of lower gas prices.

“We could have turned a blind eye to Putin’s barbaric war against Ukraine and the price of gas wouldn’t have spiked the way it has, but America rose to the moment. We proudly stand with Ukraine,” Biden wrote.

According to Biden, the G7 will continue to hit Putin’s military-industrial complex, prevent the central bank’s foreign reserves from propping up his ailing economy, and deprive Putin of the resources he needs to wage his illegitimate war.

"Together, the G7 will deliver unwavering, unified commitment to support Ukraine and build on our unprecedented sanctions to hold President Putin accountable – sanctions that will only compound over time to further isolate Russia from the world economy," Biden stressed.

The U.S. leader published infographics on Twitter showing the areas of U.S. and G7 support for Ukraine. These include taking measures to target Russia's military production and supply chains; using tariffs on Russian goods to support Ukraine; restricting Russia's participation in the global market, cracking down on evasion attempts; imposing costs on those responsible for human rights abuses, including war crimes, profiteering, and illegitimate authorities; providing budgetary and other support for Ukraine.
