US President Joe Biden has accused Russia of “shamelessly” violating the core tenets of the United Nations charter with its “brutal, needless war” in Ukraine.
Delivering a forceful condemnation of Russia’s invasion to the UN General Assembly, Biden said reports of Russian abuses against civilians in Ukraine “should make your blood run cold”.
He also said Russian President Vladimir Putin’s new thinly veiled nuclear threats showed “reckless disregard” for his nation’s responsibilities as a signatory of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
“We will stand in solidarity against Russia’s aggression. Period,” he added.-Al Jazeera
