The United States will never recognize the territory of Ukraine as anything other than part of Ukraine, published Friday September 23, US President Joe Biden. The Russian-organized “referendums” in the Ukrainian regions it occupies – parts of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, as well as the self-proclaimed “DPR” and “LPR” – Biden called a sham and a far-fetched pretext for annexation that violates international law and Violates UN Charter.

According to him, the US, like any country that respects the basic principles of the UN Charter, will reject the fabricated results of these “referenda”. Washington, along with its allies, will continue to support and assist the Ukrainian people in ensuring their security and repelling Russian aggression. In addition, the US and its partners will work together to take “quick and hard” economic action against the Kremlin for staging pseudo-referendums, the White House head warned.

Biden called Putin’s threats ‘irresponsible’

At the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, the President of the United States spoke called “irresponsible” the mobilization of Russians for the war against Ukraine announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin and his threat to use nuclear weapons. “A nuclear war cannot be won and should never be fought,” Biden said, noting that Russia has not been threatened, contrary to his claims to the contrary.

According to The Washington Post, USA The Kremlin has been warned for several months about the serious consequences if Moscow uses nuclear weapons in Ukraine. Mid-September, Joe Biden in an interview with CBS urged Putin to abandon this idea. At the same time, when asked by a journalist what the reaction of the US would be in the event of such a move, Biden replied: “Do you think I would tell you this if I knew what it would be? Of course I will.” you don’t. It will have consequences.” .

Previously, the United States tried to maintain ties with Russia

In early September, after lengthy discussions about the possibility of recognizing Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism, Joe Biden made the final decision not to include it in the list of such countries. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said blacklisting the Russian Federation, including Iran, Cuba, North Korea and Syria, would lead to delays in food exports and the transportation of goods through the Black Sea. Russia, in turn, stated that its recognition as a state sponsor of terrorism would eventually sever US-Russian ties.
