On Wednesday, March 16, 2022, the U.S.President Joe Biden joined the videoconference from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi to Congress. The President of Ukraine aired a video showing Ukrainian people suffering from Russia’s attacks.
“I think he is a war criminal,” – said Joe Baiden after the event, while making remarks at the White House speaking with reporters
As it has been reported, the Russian army is keeping to hitting Ukrainian peaceful towns without military objects, throwing bombs and cruise missiles on living urban areas, including in the capital of Ukraine Kyiv. Additionally, 10 civilians waiting in line for bread in the Ukrainian city Chernihive were shot to death by the Russian army. Recently UaPosition reported about more than a thousand civilians sheltering in the theater of Mariupol marked as “children” were bombed by Russian militants and buried under the destroyed building. Moreover, the Russian soldiers didn’t let the Ukrainian firefighters rescue people so the number of killed remained unknown
“We saw reports that Russian forces were holding hundreds of doctors and patients hostage in the largest hospital in Mariupol,” Joe Biden said. “These are atrocities. They’re an outrage to the world. And the world is united in our support for Ukraine and our determination to make Putin pay a very heavy price.”
The Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky asked American lawmakers and U.S. President Joe Biden for more help defending itself, especially for a no-fly zone. Uaposition reminds, recently NATO governments, including the United States, refuse to make a no-fly zone, because of the risk to put NATO forces in direct conflict with Russia.
“In the darkest time for our country, for the whole of Europe, I call on you to do more,” – Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said.
In response, the USA has promised $800 million in security assistance to Ukraine to fight against Russia’s aggression. Additionally, Ukraine will receive drones, anti-armor, anti-aircraft systems to protect from the Russian invasion.
“More will be coming as we source additional stocks of equipment that … we are ready to transfer,” Biden said, later condemning Putin.
