Kuleba: Biden confident what is happening in Ukraine will change 21st century
U.S. President Joe Biden is confident that what is happening in Ukraine will change the 21st century, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has said following a meeting with him in Warsaw.
"President Biden said two things. First, what is happening in Ukraine will change the 21st century. He has an absolutely clear understanding of this. What we have always been talking about since 2014 is that this is not a war of Russia against Ukraine. This is a war of tyranny against the free world. Today, President Biden said just that: what is happening in Ukraine will change the history of the 21st century, and we will work together to ensure that this change is for our benefit – for the benefit of Ukraine, for the benefit of the democratic world" , Kuleba said in a video message on Facebook on Saturday.
Kuleba said that Biden joined his talks with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and talks between Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov and U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. According to him, he and Biden had a long, broad conversation.
"He joined us for two reasons, to continue his dialogue with President Zelensky, and also because he wanted to express his respect and admiration for all Ukrainians who are resisting the Russian aggressor in our person – me and Oleksiy Reznikov," the minister said.
Kuleba said that they spoke in great detail about Mariupol.
"I want you, everyone who is currently defending Mariupol, to know that we, Ukraine, together with our partners, are doing everything possible to help you. And President Biden has the same admiration for every Ukrainian, who contributes to victory over Russia," the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said.
