KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden is telling Ukrainian political leaders that the United States stands with them against "humiliating threats."
Biden told the leaders from Ukraine's various political parties in a meeting today that they face a historic opportunity to build a united Ukraine. He also encouraged them to "fight the cancer of corruption" within their system of government.
He says the U.S. also stands ready to help Ukraine become energy-independent instead of having to rely on Russian supplies.
