Joe Biden recalled that the United States had warned Volodymyr Zelensky that Russia could invade Ukraine.
The American president explained in a press conference that the Ukrainian leader had not paid attention to his warnings before the Russian invasion last February.
He said: “I know a lot of people thought I was overreacting. But I knew we had information to back him up. »
He added: “Putin was going to cross the border. And there was no doubt about it, and Zelensky, like many other people, didn’t want to hear it. I understand why they didn’t want to hear it, but (Putin) came in. »
The head of the Kremlin ordered the assault on Ukraine on February 24 and the most brutal conflicts are taking place in the regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, located in the east of the country.
The war has been going on for more than three months now and Zelensky recently confided that he lost around 10,000 men.
