For this, programs worth millions of dollars were started.
But, given the international developments, the focus of Biden’s speech was the Ukraine Crisis. He strongly criticized Putin, saying that the Russian president had made a mistake in guessing Ukraine. “He (Putin) thought he would be able to trample Ukraine and the world would watch. On the contrary, he faced a stronger wall than he could have imagined,” Bidney said.
Biden praised Ukrainian President V Zelensky and the Ukrainian people. “His fearlessness, courage and determination have inspired the entire world,” he said. He said Putin ignored efforts to avoid war.
