President Joe Biden is ripping Russian President Vladimir Putin after his country's latest attacks on Ukraine. The overnight attack was the largest aerial assault in the nearly two years of war. Biden said Putin "seeks to obliterate Ukraine and subjugate its people. He must be stopped." The rocket and drone attacks killed 31 and injured more than 160 others, according to officials. The President called on Congress to approve more aid for Ukraine, pointing out that the Eastern European nation used air defense systems from the US and its allies to protect itself from the attack.

Ukraine President President Volodymyr Zelensky called it one of the biggest missile attacks in the war so far, but added that most of them were shot down.

Zelensky posted on X, "It’s important that the world responds to this terror. Many leaders have expressed their support for Ukraine and Ukrainians, and I thank each one of them. Especially those who helped our state with air defense. Today, our air defense warriors accomplished a lot. We will continue to strengthen our air defense and work to return war back to where it came from—to Russia."
