In his State of the Union speech on Tuesday, US President Joe Biden stated that Russian President Vladimir Putin is more isolated from the rest of the world than he has ever been.

In his State of the Union speech, Biden praised Ukraine and announced the closing of US airspace to all Russian planes.

The president delivered his State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday night.

 

He began his engagement by emphasizing the importance of the Ukrainians prior to the Russian invasion.

“Everyone has joined together to protect their motherland,” he said, “from President Zelensky to every single citizen, from kids to instructors.”

Biden went on to say that the Russian attack was planned and calculated and that Vladimir Putin acted like a tyrant as a result of his activities. “Putin was mistaken; we are ready in the United States and the West,” he declared.

 

“We’re ready to go head-to-head with Putin.” We’ll hold him accountable now that he’s taken action. The allies are inflicting hardship on Russia. Putin is now more than ever isolated from the rest of the world,” Biden said, adding that the crippling sanctions will “undermine” Russia’s economy and weaken its military.

During the action, representatives of the US administration, members of Congress, and all members of the Supreme Court of Justice were present.

Many of those in attendance are wearing the Ukrainian flag or wearing the yellow and blue colors of the European country.

 

The president insisted on the courage of the Ukrainian power in the midst of the crisis unleashed by the Russian invasion. “Putin can surround Kiev with tanks but not win the hearts of the Ukrainians. This will never weaken the will of the free world.”

In an attempt to minimize the economic impact of the crisis in Europe, Biden announced that his country will release 30 million barrels of oil from its strategic reserve.

“The United States has worked with 30 other countries to release 60 million barrels of oil from reserves around the world. The United States will lead that effort, releasing 30 million barrels of oil,” Biden announced, adding that Washington is “ready to do more, if necessary.”

Regarding the impact of the pandemic in the United States, the president said that he fought for the immediate assistance plan that allowed aid to the most economically affected people.
