"Russia thinks the world will get tired": Biden urged UN member states to support Ukraine. Video
The aggressor country Russia believes that the world will get tired. This statement was made by U.S. President Joe Biden during a speech at the general debate of the 78th session of the UN General Assembly on Tuesday.
He called on UN member states to support Ukraine. Biden emphasized that the United States and its partners will continue to support Ukrainians who are resisting the overt aggression of the Russian Federation to prevent it from dividing Ukraine and undermining the security of other countries.
"Russia thinks that the world will get tired and allow it to bully Ukraine without consequences. But let me ask you: if we abandon the basic principles of the UN to appease the aggressor, can any member state of this body be sure that it is protected? If we allow (the Russian Federation - Ed.) to divide Ukraine, will the independence of any nation be safe?" Biden addressed the General Assembly.
He said that no UN member state would feel safe if Ukraine was allowed to be "cut up."
"We must confront this blatant aggression today and deter other potential aggressors tomorrow. That's why the United States, along with our allies and partners around the world, will continue to stand with the brave people of Ukraine as they defend their sovereignty, territorial integrity and freedom," he added.
Biden also said that this support is not only an investment in Ukraine's future, it is also an investment in the future of every country that seeks to live in a world based on rules that are equal for all nations and that protect the rights of every country, big and small.
He also emphasized that the United States wants the war in Ukraine to end, and no one wants it more than Ukrainians.
However, according to the American leader, only Russia is responsible for starting this war, and only it can end it immediately.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky arrived on a visit to the United States, where he plans to address the United Nations General Assembly, which will take place on September 19-21.
