Putin launched a regime change war, and some think he’s the victim - analysis
Biden's comments don’t affirm Putin’s concerns. Putin launched a war on Ukraine that was unprovoked.

Russia launched a war intending to change the government in Kyiv. It openly says it is seeking “denazification” and “disarmament” of Ukraine. However, a comment by US President Joe Biden has now been taken as evidence that the US wants “regime change” in Moscow. “For God’s sake, this man [Russian President Vladimir Putin] cannot remain in power,” Biden said in an impassioned speech.

US officials have walked back that quote, noting that “the president’s point was that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region. He was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia, or regime change.” However, the critique of Biden’s comments seems to ignore the reality of the war in Ukraine. Russia is the aggressor.

No one should be surprised by the things that slip through diben's lips. He has no idea himself and probably forgets what he's said moments later.
