President Biden said in his State of the Union address Tuesday night said Ukrainian President Voldymyr Zelenskyy “inspirers the world,” as he stays in the country’s capitol of Kyiv while it’s under siege by the Russian military. “Six days ago, Russia’s Vladimir Putin sought to shake the very foundations of the free world, thinking he could make it bend to his menacing ways. But he badly miscalculated. He thought he could roll into Ukraine and the world would roll over,” Biden said. “Instead, he met with… a wall of strength he never anticipated or imagined. He met the Ukrainian people and President Zelenskyy.”

Many countries, “even Switzerland, are inflicting pain on Russia and supporting the people of Ukraine. Putin is now more isolated from the world than he has ever been,” Biden said to a standing ovation. Fox News’ Liz Frieden contributed to this report.
