MADRID – President Joe Biden vowed Thursday the U.S. and its NATO allies would back Ukraine “for as long as it takes” in its war with Russia.

Russia is paying “a very, very heavy price” for its decision to invade Ukraine, Biden said, during a news conference in Madrid at the close of a six-day trip to Europe, which included a summit of NATO leaders.

Earlier this month, Moscow defaulted on its national debt for the first time in a century and its economy has suffered because of sanctions imposed by the U.S. and its NATO allies.

Biden said Russia has lots its “international standing” and suffered another military setback with its withdrawal of forces from Snake Island, a strategically important island that sits along a busy shipping lane in the Black Sea and has come to symbolize Ukrainian resistance to the invasion.
