“The idea that Putin is ever going to defeat Ukraine is beyond comprehension”
U.S. President Joe Biden and French President Emmanuel Macron stressed the importance of the nations’ alliance in support of Ukraine amid Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
The two leaders spoke to reporters in a joint press conference at the White House.
“I think it’s absolutely critical, what Emmanuel said: We must support the Ukrainian people,” Biden said. “The idea that Putin is ever going to defeat Ukraine is beyond comprehension.”
French President Emmanuel Macron said he was thankful to have the U.S. as a partner in backing Ukraine.
“Having the U.S. strongly support the Ukrainians at this time is very important not just for the Ukrainians, but for the Europeans, who we are. This is why we do thank you for the solidarity, for the stability of our world today,” Macron said. “Because if we consider that we can abandon the country and abandon the full respect of its principles, it means there is no possible stability in this world.”
