U.S. Vice President Joe Biden says “the international community” must stand up against Russian aggression and urged President-elect Donald Trump to be a strong supporter and partner of Ukraine.

Speaking Monday in Kyiv alongside President Petro Poroshenko, Biden noted Ukraine is “fighting both the cancer of corruption” and “the unrelenting aggression of the Kremlin.”

Comments by Trump in a joint interview with The Times of London and Germany’s Bild newspaper suggested he is looking to cut a deal with Russia over Ukraine’s head, ending sanctions on Moscow in exchange for a deal on cutting nuclear weapons.
