After Joe Biden's visit to Kyiv, the president went to Poland. The crowd was waiting for the historic speech with Andrzej Duda from the tribune decorated with the flags of Poland, the USA and Ukraine.
Fragments of the US president's speech concerning Ukraine:
"I just arrived from Kyiv. And I will tell you — Kyiv is standing. Kyiv is free. Cruelty will never suppress the will of the free."
"Putin made a mistake when he invaded Ukraine, the Ukrainian people turned out to be very brave and strong."
"Putin expected an easy victory, but instead, he left burned tanks and destroyed cities. He thought he would do "demilitarisation", but instead, he got "NATOfication" of Finland and Sweden. He thought he could use energy as a weapon. But no. We mobilised and reduced our dependence on Russian energy resources."
"Ukraine will never become a victim of Russia."
"Putin faced a man made of steel (with Zelenskyy — ed.)."
"Now is a turning point in history that will define the future for decades for the people of the world."
"Democratic countries have become stronger, Putin — weaker. Putin thought we would retreat. He was wrong. We are united. Today, tomorrow and forever."
"Freedom is on the agenda. When president Zelenskyy said that this battle will determine the world in which our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will live, he was talking about the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of not only Ukrainians."
The president emphasised that the European Union and the United States do not seek the destruction of Russia and do not threaten it. However, every day of war is Putin's choice. Ukraine will not stop its struggle, as it is fighting for its existence. Therefore, the states will continue to supply weapons, provide humanitarian and financial aid, which will put an end to this tragedy — the war.
