US President Joe Biden at UNGA: 

Biden said that Putin has ‘shamelessly violated’ UN charter with Ukraine invasion, which started on February 24. 

Biden said, “We stand in solidarity with Ukraine.. and against Russian aggression. Period!” 

“Nothing worse more than a country taking the borders of a country by force. Now Russia is calling for more forces to join the force. It is significant violence of the UN charter. Putin claims that he acted because Russia was threatened but no one threatened Russia,” Biden added. 

Biden said that the Russian forces have attacked Ukrainian schools, railway stations and hospitals, part of Moscow’s aim of “extinguishing Ukraine’s right to exist as a state”.

Biden said he ‘supports’ expanding ‘permanent and non-permanent “members of the UN Security Council. 

“The United States supports increasing the number of both permanent and non-permanent representatives of the council,” Biden said. 

“This includes permanent seats for those nations we’ve long supported – permanent seats for countries in Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean. The United States is committed to this vital work,” he added.
