President Biden on Friday issued a scathing statement against Russian President Vladimir Putin after Russia’s latest attacks on Ukraine, the largest aerial assault since the war began.

“It is a stark reminder to the world that, after nearly two years of this devastating war, Putin’s objective remains unchanged. He seeks to obliterate Ukraine and subjugate its people. He must be stopped,” Biden said. 

The remarks come after a heavy overnight assault by Russia, and as Congress remains deadlocked over whether to provide further support for Ukraine. Biden has requested aid, but it is now part of a negotiation centered on the border, and its fate is very much in doubt.

The rocket and drone attacks across Ukraine early Friday killed at least 24 people, according to The Associated Press. Russia launched its attack days after Ukraine launched a strike in Crimea, which Russia occupies.

Biden noted that the Russians used drones and missiles, including those with hypersonic capability, for the bombardment and the deadly strikes hit a maternity hospital, shopping mall, and residential areas. 

The president called on Congress to provide more aid for Ukraine, noting Ukraine used air defense systems from the U.S. and other allies to fend off the attack.

“The American people can be proud of the lives we have helped to save and the support we have given Ukraine as it defends its people, its freedom, and its independence. But unless Congress takes urgent action in the new year, we will not be able to continue sending the weapons and vital air defense systems Ukraine needs to protect its people. Congress must step up and act without any further delay,” Biden said.

Zelensky visited Washington earlier this month to lobby for more help for his war-torn country.
