On June 27, the first debate between the two presidential candidates, the current head of state Joe Biden and his predecessor in office, Donald Trump, took place in the United States. During the debate, they touched upon the issue of Russia's war against Ukraine.

And in the course of discussing this issue, a dispute arose between the opponents. It was shown during the live broadcast of the debate.

Thus, during his remarks, Trump accused Biden of being responsible for the beginning of Russia's full-scale aggression against Ukraine.

"If we had a real president, Putin would never have invaded Ukraine," said Trump, who obviously does not consider Biden a "real president."

He also reiterated his common thesis that he can "end the war in Ukraine" even before he is "elected president." He plans to achieve peace by making sure that "Zelensky and Putin get along."

At the same time, Trump lashed out at Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy too, saying that he returns to Ukraine with $60 billion "in his pocket" after every visit to the United States. And, according to the Republican presidential candidate, "this has to stop."

In addition, Trump criticized Biden for the chaos during the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, saying that this was allegedly the reason for Russian dictator Vladimir Putin's aggression against Ukraine.

When Biden took the floor, he called Putin a war criminal. He also critisized Trump's words that Putin could attack anywhere if NATO allies did not increase their defense budget.

"Trump wants the United States to withdraw from NATO. But the strength is in our alliances. We could not have avoided a major war in Europe if it were not for our alliance," Biden said.

The Democratic candidate emphasized that if Putin is not stopped in Ukraine, he will expand his aggression to other countries, including NATO members such as Poland.

Meanwhile, Trump accused Biden of leading the United States to World War III and said that "Ukraine will not win the war" because of the current US president's "stupid policies." Trump also emphasized that Russia occupied Ukrainian lands during the presidencies of Barack Obama and Biden, not his.

"I want to say that Russia took a lot of land under Obama and Biden. Under me, it didn't. Putin knew that he couldn't play with me. The war in Ukraine should not have started, and now he will take over Ukraine. Biden has put us in a bad position with Ukraine and Russia. Ukraine will not win the war. They are running out of people. It's sad, they have lost so many people... Because of Biden's stupid policies," Trump said.
