Biden says Putin 'cannot remain in power' as Zelenskyy pushes Europe to hand over weapons 'covered with dust'

Russia’s president “cannot stay in power”, Joe Biden stated in a speech in which he appealed to Russia to oppose the war and assured the Ukrainians that the US is there for them.

In a powerful speech delivered in Warsaw, Poland by the US president, he reaffirmed earlier comments in which he called Vladimir Putin “a butcher”, and described him as “a dictator”. He also stated that stopping the war in Ukraine was “the task for our time”.

He stated that “Brutality won’t bring down the will to be Free.” Russia will not win Ukraine.”

“For God’s sake, this person cannot remain in power,” Mr Biden said at the end his speech.


Later, the White House denied that the US president had called for regime change.

A Kremlin spokesperson responded to Mr Biden’s comment by saying: “That’s not up to Biden to decide. Russians elect the president of Russia.

Putin “strangled democracy”

A month before Ukraine invaded, Mr Biden stated that only swift and punishing costs will convince Mr Putin to change his mind.

His message to Ukrainians was simple: “We stand by you.”

He said that Russia had “strangled democracy”, and had “sought it to do so elsewhere”, while Putin had “the gall” not to invade Ukraine.

Biden stated that it was a lie. It’s just cynical. He is aware of that. It’s also absurd.”
