On Wednesday, U.S. President Joe Biden met with leaders of the Bucharest Nine nations in Warsaw, to reassure allies that U.S. support will never cease with Ukraine against Russia. While on the other hand, Putin met with Chinese top diplomat Wang Yi in Moscow however, last week, the U.S. raised its concern over China’s supply of weapon aid to Russia’s military against Ukraine. These meetups from both countries to their allies indicate that the conflict in Ukraine will be dragging on for long period.
Biden’s recent trip had provided another moment of telling counterprogramming on his speech on Western unity in Warsaw. After Biden’s speech Putin announced that Russia was suspending its participation in the last remaining U.S.-Russia nuclear arms control treaty.
Biden called that exit “a big mistake.” The exit is expected to have an immediate impact on U.S. awareness of Russian nuclear activities. However, the deal, known as New START, had been intended to salvage an agreement that each side has blamed the other for violating.
Biden met with leaders of the Bucharest Nine, the easternmost parts of the NATO alliance that came jointly in response to Putin’s 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. The countries include Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia.
You’re the frontlines of our collective defense. nd you know, better than anyone, what’s at stake in this conflict. Not just for Ukraine, but for the freedom of democracies throughout Europe and around the World”.

The following countries raise a concern about if Putin wins the war in Ukraine then he will take military action against these countries. Biden responded to that concern by vowing that NATO’s mutual defense pact is “sacred” and that “we will defend literally every inch of NATO.”
We cannot allow Russia to continue to chip away at European security. We must break the cycle of Russian aggression”.
