Speaking at the Royal Castle in Warsaw, President Biden followed his surprise visit to Kyiv. Biden began his speech noting that a year ago “the world was bracing for the fall of Kyiv.”

“Kyiv stands strong! Kyiv stands proud. It stands tall. And most important, it stands free.”

“Freedom. The enemy of the tyrant and the hope of the brave and the truth of the ages.


“Stand with us,” Biden said. “We will stand with you.”
