Biden promised Zelensky a speedy transfer of military aid.

US President Joe Biden assured Vladimir Zelensky of the speedy transfer of military assistance to Kyiv, the White House said.

“President Biden spoke by phone today with President Zelensky of Ukraine, in which he emphasized the United States’ commitment to supporting Ukraine as it defends against Russian aggression. President Biden said that once the Senate passes and he signs the supplemental defense budget, the administration will quickly provide significant new defense assistance packages so that Ukraine can meet its immediate air defense needs,” the US administration said.

Biden also said economic assistance from the United States would contribute to financial stability, rebuilding infrastructure destroyed by Russian attacks and supporting reforms for Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic integration.

On Saturday, the US House of Representatives passed a bill to allocate almost $61 billion to the Kyiv regime.

This document will then be sent to the Senate for consideration. In addition, congressmen approved the confiscation of Russia’s sovereign assets in favor of Ukraine.
