President Joe Biden is in Warsaw, Poland on Tuesday give a speech on the one-year anniversary of the Russian war in Ukraine. The president will argue that the war is part of a global struggle between authoritarianism and democracy.

The president made a secret 23-hour trip to Kiev, Ukraine on Monday, where he met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and announced a new arms package for the country worth about $500 million.

The speech also comes hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed a joint session of the Russian parliament. In it, Putin framed the war as a proxy battle against the West and announced that he would suspend participation in the New START Treaty, the only remaining major nuclear deal between the US and Russia.

Biden will say that democracy and democratic coalitions like NATO have only gotten stronger in the last year. It’s an argument he has long made as president when advocating for democracy in the U.S. and abroad.

“This is the largest land war in Europe in three-quarters of a century, and you are successful against all and sundry odds but your own. We are confident that you will continue to win,” Biden said in Kiev on Monday. “One year later, Kyiv stands and Ukraine stands. Democracy stands. Americans stand with you and the world stands with you.”
