The United States will begin military deliveries to Ukraine in the coming hours, Biden said.

The United States will begin military deliveries to Ukraine in the coming hours, US President Joe Biden said in a televised address as he signed a new funding package for foreign allies, including Ukraine.

“I will ensure that deliveries begin immediately, literally in the next few hours we will begin sending equipment to Ukraine, including rounds for air defense, artillery and missile systems and armored vehicles,” Biden said.

The law signed today provides for the allocation of almost $61 billion to Kyiv.

“We are sending Ukraine equipment from our own reserves and will replenish them with the creation of new equipment and ammunition created at American enterprises,” the US President said.

Biden called the new aid package “quite literally an investment not only in the security of Ukraine, but in the security of Europe and our own security.”


After six months of debate, the bill, which generally met the White House’s requests, was passed by the House of Representatives on Saturday and approved by the Senate on Tuesday evening. In addition to Ukraine, it includes additional funding for Israel and US allies in the Indo-Pacific region, including Taiwan.
