President Joe Biden said the Russian people "are not our enemy" at a speech from Warsaw, Poland.

World leaders had gathered to discuss Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Biden said Vladimir Putin "cannot remain in power," but he stopped short of calling for a regime change.

President Joe Biden on Saturday said that the Russian people "are not our enemy" during a speech in Europe — pleading with the Russian people to oppose Vladimir Putin's ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine.

During Biden's visit in Warsaw, several rockets struck the western Ukrainian city of Lviv, just 45 miles away from Poland.

Russian forces have also been accused of war crimes, targeting Ukrainian schools and hospitals. »
