Biden-Russia's 'War Is About Extinguishing Ukraine's Right To Exist'


US President Joe Biden delivering address to UNGA in New York City. Uses some very forceful rhetoric following Putin's address earlier this morning.

  • Biden: "Putin claims he had to act because Russia was threatened. But no one threatened Russia. And no one other than Russia sought conflict. This war is about extinguishing Ukraine’s right to exist as as a state, plain and simple, and the Ukrainian people’s right to exist as a people… That should make your blood run cold."
  • Biden: "Let us speak plainly. A permanent member of the United Nations Security Council invaded its neighbor."
  • Biden: "Russia has shamelessly violated core tenets of UN charter...Putin has made reckless nuclear threats'.
  • Biden: "If nations can pursue their imperialist ambitious without consequence, we put everything this institution stands for at risk. Everything."
  • Biden voices support for increasing number of permanent and non-permanent members of the UN Security Council.
