PARIS, France – U.S. President Joe Biden gave a direct message to the Russian people while speaking from Warsaw Saturday telling them, ‘You…are not out enemy’.

t’I’ve always spoken directly and honestly to you, the Russian people, let me say this if you’re able to listen: You the Russian people are not our enemy. I refuse to believe that you welcome the killing of innocent children and grandparents or that you accept hospitals, schools, maternity wards – for God’s sake – being pummeled with Russian missiles and bombs’, Biden said.

Biden also said Putin’s action in Ukraine are ‘not the actions of a great nation’ and called on Russians who were alive during the Soviet Union and heard of it from their families to speak up.

‘These are not memories of the past’, Biden said. ‘This is exactly what the Russian army is doing in Ukraine right now’.

‘This is not who you are. This is not the future you deserve for your families and your children. I’m telling you the truth. This was is not worthy of you, the Russian people’, Biden said.
