Speaking to alumni of the US Navy, president Joe Biden voiced a terrible truth: a Russian tyrant is trying to wipe out not only the independent Ukrainian nation but also its culture and memory. Putin's task is to ensure that the existence of Ukraine and Ukrainians is never mentioned again over time because it does not seem to exist.
"Not only is he trying to take over Ukraine, he's really trying to wipe out the culture and identity of the Ukrainian people — attacking schools, nurseries, hospitals, museums," Biden described Putin's actions. "With no other purpose than to eliminate a culture — a direct assault on the fundamental tenets of rule-based international order. That's what you're graduating into."
Joe Biden did not miss the fact that Europe, which was trying to become neutral, "Finlandizing", due to Putin's destructive policy, is expanding NATO's borders.
"All of this is illustrative of a foreign policy that is built around the power of working together with allies and partners to amplify our strength, to solve problems, to project our power beyond what we can do alone, and to preserve stability in an uncertain world," Biden said.
In an interview with The New York Times, Ukrainian Ombudsman Lyudmila Denisova said that Russians rape women "... until they can't give birth, or give birth to their children. This suggests that they want to destroy the Ukrainian nation. And when they kill children, it also means that they don't want our nation to be in this world."
We remind you that Russia plans to execute soldiers who bravely defended the now destroyed Azovstal and thousands of Mariupol residents who hid in the basements of this plant.
