President Joe Biden forcefully condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine while speaking at the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, as concerns over Russia using nuclear weapons grows.

Biden utilized the moment to slam Russian President Vladimir Putin just hours after he ordered a partial mobilization of 300,000 reservists and claimed he was ‘not bluffing’ about his willingness to use nuclear weapons against the West.

‘Just today, President Putin has made overt nuclear threats against Europe,’ Biden said, adding that the Kremlin was ‘shamelessly’ organizing a ‘sham referendum’ in violation of the UN Charter.

Much of his address focused on Russia’s violation of the UN Charter, which exists to prevent countries from attack each other needlessly.

‘A permanent member of the United Nations Security Council invaded its neighbor, attempted to erase the sovereign state from the map,’ the President said, speaking from the UN General Assembly in New York City.

‘This war is about extinguishing Ukraine’s right to exist as a state, plain and simple, and Ukraine’s right to exist as people,’ he added.

‘Wherever you are, wherever you live, whatever you believe — that should make your blood run cold,’ Biden said.
