“I’m holding my fist. That’s our unwritten law. I don’t know if you understand this standard. I hold my fist or cross my fingers so that this will never occur, that any president of the United States would fear Russia because America, for us, was always a symbol of democracy, and I comprise faith that Ukraine is also now — for Ukraine, you are also a symbol of freedom,” he continued.
Putin’s attack on Ukraine was met with oecumenical condemnation, as countries including the UK, Canada, and the US have issued sanctions that have impacted Russia’s economy and its oligarchs.
Biden has publicly opposed Russia’s proceedings since the war began. Last month, Biden labeled Putin a”war criminal” and recently during a visit to Poland he mean that the Russian leader was a “butcher.”
In one of his harshest criticisms of Putin, Biden said that he “cannot remain in power,” a expose that the White House and US Secretary of State Antony Blinken walked back.
“We do not have a strategy of regime hard cash in Russia, or anywhere else, for that matter,” Blinken said last weekend.
