Russia has blatantly violated the core principles of the UN Charter
The President of the United States, Joe Biden, declared today at the General Assembly of the United Nations that Russia has shamelessly violated the "fundamental principles" of the UN, with its cruel and unprovoked war in Ukraine. He said that the war is an action that violates what this organization represents, while he asked the allies to unite to stand in solidarity, in support of the Ukrainian resistance.
While strongly condemning Russia's seven-month offensive, Biden said reports of Russian crimes against civilians in Ukraine should horrify all countries. He said that Russian President Vladimir Putin's latest threats to use nuclear weapons against Europe is a flagrant violation of Russia's responsibilities as a signatory to the Treaty prohibiting the use and proliferation of nuclear weapons.
"A permanent member of the UN Security Council attacked its neighbor, tried to wipe a sovereign state off the map. Russia has blatantly violated the core principles of the UN Charter. We will stand in solidarity against Russia's aggression," he said to those present at the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
Biden called on all countries, whether democratic or autocratic, to condemn the Russian attack and help Ukraine's efforts to defend itself.
The Albanian delegation led by Prime Minister Edi Rama also takes part in the proceedings of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly. Rama participated today in one of the high-level meetings where the war in Ukraine and cyber attacks, including the multiple attacks against Albania, were also discussed.
