The US President Joe Biden said war-torn Ukraine will “never be a victory for Russia” as he delivered a speech in Poland before the first anniversary of Russia’s invasion.
“A dictator bent on rebuilding an empire will never be able to ease the people’s love of liberty, brutality will never grind down the will of the free. Ukraine will never be a victory for Russia – never,” Biden told a crowd gathered outside the Royal Castle in Warsaw.
He said that his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin thought he was “tough” but then met the “iron will of America”.
“He thought autocrats like himself were tough and leaders of democracy were soft and then he met the iron will of America and nations everywhere that refused to accept a world governed by fear,” Biden said.-Al Jazeera
