Biden speaks with Zelensky, says US ‘stands with Ukraine’

Joe Biden

US President Joe Biden said he spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky today.

“I told him, as I have each and every time we’ve spoken, that the United States stands with the people of Ukraine and as they bravely fight to defend their country, and they are doing that,” he said at the White House.

“As Putin continues his merciless assault, the United States and allies and partners continue to work in lockstep to ramp up the economic pressures on Putin and to further isolate Russia on the global stage. Later today, together with other NATO allies and the G7, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, as well as European Union, we’re going to jointly announce several new steps to squeeze [Russian President] Putin and hold him even more accountable for his aggression against Ukraine,” Biden said.
