Biden slams Russia for missile strike

"We again call on Russia to end this unprovoked aggression immediately and remove its troops from Ukraine"

US President Joe Biden on Monday slammed Russia for missile strikes across Ukraine that killed at least 11 civilians

Russia on Monday unleashed a series of missile strikes against multiple Ukrainian cities

Russian President Vladimir Putin said was in retaliation for Kyiv's terrorist actions

An attack last weekend on a key bridge, prized by the Kremlin, between Russia and the Crimean Peninsula.

These attacks killed and injured civilians and destroyed targets with no military purpose.

Strongly condemning Russia's missile strikes across Ukraine, including in Kyiv, Biden offered condolences to the families

They once again demonstrate the utter brutality of Putin's illegal war on the Ukrainian people, Biden said.

"I extend my deepest sympathies to the people of Ukraine who have lost loved ones today. The United States stands with you," Blinken said.
