United States will always respect Ukraine's internationally recognized borders - Biden

19:26 30 September Kyiv, Ukraine

Joe Biden said that the States will continue to support Ukraine's efforts to regain control over the territories seized by Russia.


According to him, the US condemns Russia's fraudulent attempt to annex sovereign Ukrainian territory.
 
"Russia violates international law, flouts the Charter of the United Nations, and demonstrates its disregard for peace-loving peoples everywhere. Make no mistake: these actions have no legitimacy. The United States will always respect Ukraine's internationally recognized borders. We will continue to support Ukraine's efforts to regain control of its territory by strengthening its position militarily and diplomatically, including through the additional $1.1 billion in security assistance announced by the United States this week. " Biden said.
 
He noted that in response to the annexation attempts, the United States, along with allies and partners, is today announcing new sanctions.
 
"These sanctions will incur costs for individuals and legal entities - inside and outside of Russia, who provide political or economic support to illegal attempts to change the status of the territory of Ukraine. We will rally the international community to denounce these steps and hold Russia accountable.
 
According to him, the States will continue to supply Ukraine with the equipment it needs for self-defense.
 
"I look forward to Congress signing legislation that will provide an additional $12 billion to support Ukraine," Biden said.
 
He called on the world to continue to support the people of Ukraine.
