Biden's victory in U.S. elections

  • Leading American media announced Joe Biden's win in the U.S. presidential elections.
  • In turn, the incumbent President of the United States, Donald Trump, refused to acknowledge his rival's victory. He stressed that the final results of the elections are announced after the counting of legal votes, rather than after media reports.
  • World leaders, however, were quick to congratulate Biden on his victory. Among them was President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.
