Biden’s Pentagon Grants $125 Million In Military Funding To Ukraine
resident Joe Biden’s Department of Defense is providing a $125 million grant to Ukraine to improve the country’s ability to counter Russian aggression, the Pentagon announced Monday.
The package comes roughly seven years after Russia first annexed Crimea, a region of Ukraine, in 2014. Russia has maintained high levels of aggression toward the former Soviet nation in the years since. Former President Donald Trump was notoriously impeached and subsequently acquitted for holding up a military grant to Ukraine in 2019 for political reasons.
