Biden Announces Another $800 Million in Military Aid for Ukraine

Summary from the AllSides News Team

On Thursday, President Joe Biden announced that he is seeking congressional approval to send another $800 million in military aid to Ukraine, adding to the roughly $1.6 billion in military aid already offered to help against Russia's invasion.  

According to the Defense Department, the package will include howitzers, artillery rounds, tactical vehicles, and unmanned aerial drone systems. Biden also announced an additional $500 million in economic assistance to the Ukrainian government to help the country's struggling economy as the war in Ukraine enters its third month.  The U.S. has already distributed the $13.6 billion in aid to Ukraine approved by Congress in March.

The announcement comes as Russia mounts continuing assaults on the Donbas region in eastern Ukraine, and as Biden and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen meet separately with Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal in Washington, DC.
