Putin 'cannot stay in power', Biden says

"For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power," the US president says - repainting the same sentence Bush said about Saddam Husain.
"For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power," said US President Joe Biden of his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, during a speech in Warsaw earlier.

The Kremlin responds: "That's not for Biden to decide - the president of Russia is elected by Russians".

The White House says Biden meant Putin should not wield power over neighbours, rather than calling for regime change.
