Speaking at the meeting with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Monday, Biden said that "the success would depend on whether or not the Ukrainian leadership meets the obligation not to this generation, but to the next generation, future generations. Future generations of Ukraine will return back to this moment."
