Biden Pledges Another $1.3 Billion in Military and Economic Aid to Ukraine

HeadlineApr 22, 2022

President Biden says the U.S. will send another $800 million in military equipment to Ukraine, including heavy artillery and tactical drones. The U.S. is also sending another $500 million in economic assistance to Ukraine. Biden’s announcement came as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky continued to appeal to European countries for more weapons. He spoke by video Thursday to the Portuguese Parliament.

President Volodymyr Zelensky: “We need weapons to defend ourselves from the brutal Russian invasion that has caused as much evil as the fascist invasion 80 years ago. Leopard tanks, armored vehicles, anti-warship Harpoon missiles — this is what you have and how you can help us to defend the freedom and civilization of Europe.”
