U.S. condemns Russia’s missile strikes across Ukraine, Biden promises to Zelensky advanced air defense systems

The United States has strongly condemned Russia’s missile strikes across Ukraine, including in Kyiv.

“These attacks killed and injured civilians and destroyed targets with no military purpose. They once again demonstrate the utter brutality of Mr. Putin’s illegal war on the Ukrainian people.

We offer our condolences to the families and loved ones of those who were senselessly killed today, as well as our best wishes for the recovery of those who were wounded.

These attacks only further reinforce our commitment to stand with the people of Ukraine for as long as it takes. Alongside our allies and partners, we will continue to impose costs on Russia for its aggression, hold Putin and Russia accountable for its atrocities and war crimes, and provide the support necessary for Ukrainian forces to defend their country and their freedom.

We again call on Russia to end this unprovoked aggression immediately and remove its troops from Ukraine,” reads a White House press release.

At the same time, U.S. President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., had a phone conversation with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine, in which expressed his condemnation of Russia’s missile strikes across Ukraine and conveyed his condolences to the families that lost someone in these attacks.

President Biden pledged to continue providing Ukraine with the support needed to defend itself, including advanced air defense systems. He also underscored his ongoing engagement with allies and partners to continue imposing costs on Russia, holding Russia accountable for its war crimes and atrocities, and providing Ukraine with security, economic, and humanitarian assistance,” says a press release.
