Biden denounces Russia at U.N., says Putin 'shamelessly violated' charter

From CBS News | Politics by Kathryn Watson

President Biden denounced Russian President Vladimir Putin over the war in Ukraine at the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Wednesday, telling world leaders that the very basis of the organization's charter is under assault.

"As we meet today, the U.N. charter's very basis of a stable and just, rule-based order is under attack by those who wish to tear it down or distort it for their own political advantage," Mr. Biden said in his second address to the assembly as president. "And the United Nations' charter was not only signed by democracies of the world. It was negotiated among citizens, dozens of nations, with vastly different histories and ideologies, united in their commitment to work for peace."
