Biden, in Finland, Says Putin Has Lost the War

From a Washington Post story by Toluse Olorunnipa and Meryl Kornfield headlined “Biden, in Finland, declares that Putin has ‘lost the war'”:

President Biden defiantly declared Thursday that Russian President Vladimir Putin has “already lost the war” in Ukraine, making the stark assertion on a visit to the newest member of the NATO alliance as he wrapped up his five-day trip to Europe with a stop in Finland.

Biden’s visit drew a sharp contrast with a 2018 trip to Finland by his predecessor, Donald Trump, who held a private meeting with Putin in the same location and created a furor when he suggested he trusted the Russian president more than he did America’s intelligence services.
