Biden: Putin ‘shamelessly violated’ UN charter with Ukraine invasion

UNITED NATIONS: US President Joe Biden tore into Vladimir Putin on Wednesday (Sep 21) as he addressed the United Nations, saying the Russian leader “shamelessly violated” the UN Charter when he invaded neighbour Ukraine.

“Russia has shamelessly violated the core tenets of the United Nations Charter,” Biden said as he addressed the UN General Assembly.

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.
