in Ukraine: Biden

While extending support to Kyiv in the ongoing Ukraine-Russia
conflict, US President Joe Biden has reiterated that his country

Biden’s remarks came during the first State of Union address
delivered by him to a joint session of Congress at the Capitol on
Tuesday (local time). Condemning Russia’s “premeditated attack”
in Ukraine, Biden said that Russian President Vladimir Putin
