Putin's invasion of Ukraine has been a test for the ages: US President Joe Biden

 WASHINGTON: As he criticized his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin for his military aggression, US President Joe Biden stated that Russia's invasion of Ukraine has been a test for the ages and the world.

"One year ago, just a few days after Vladimir Putin launched his brutal war against Ukraine, I spoke from this chamber. In his address to a joint session of the US Congress on Tuesday night, Biden described the assault as "a murderous assault, evoking images of the death and destruction Europe suffered in World War II."

On February 24, 2022, President Putin launched a "special military operation" in eastern Ukraine.

"Putin's invasion has proven to be a test for all time. America's test. a worldwide test. Would we uphold the most fundamental of principles? Would we be a supporter of sovereignty? Would we uphold the right of individuals to live without tyranny? Would we be willing to defend democracy? In his second State of the Union address, Biden asked a series of questions.

"This defense is important to us because it keeps the peace and prevents potential aggressors from having free rein to pose a threat to our safety and prosperity. We have the response a year later. We would, yes. We did, indeed. He said, "We did together what America always does at its best," to applause from the Congressmen.

He claimed that the United States united Nato and established a global coalition. We stood up to Putin's violence. Biden stated, "We stood with the Ukrainian people."

Oksana Markarova, the Ukrainian ambassador to the United States, was in the audience.

She not only represents her nation but also the bravery of her people. Ambassador, America's support for your nation is unwavering. The president declared, "We will stand with you for as long as it takes."

He stated that the United States is striving for greater peace, dignity, and freedom everywhere, not just in Europe.
