In August, we’ll travel to Chicago for the Democratic National Convention. Democracy Now! doesn’t accept corporate advertising or sponsorship revenue, and we don’t take money from any government. That means we’re relying on you. Can you donate $15 to Democracy Now! to support our RNC and DNC coverage—and so much more? Our generous triple match has been extended, which means your $15 donation is worth $45 today. Please do your part to help us air in-depth, substantive coverage of the conventions and the issues that matter most during the 2024 election cycle. Thank you so much—and remember, every dollar makes a difference.

Ukraine’s Zelensky Visits Washington, D.C., Seeking Additional Aid to Counter Russia

HeadlineSep 22, 2023

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has arrived in Canada after wrapping up a visit to Washington, D.C., where he met Thursday with U.S. lawmakers, military leaders and President Joe Biden. During a speech at the National Archives, Zelensky thanked the United States for the $113 billion in aid to Ukraine approved by Congress, saying the money is helping to prevent a wider war in Europe.

President Volodymyr Zelensky: “If we fall, half of Europe would again be in danger of being in Moscow’s sphere of influence. But American investment in Ukrainian security and global protection of freedom is working 100%, every cent.”

Meanwhile, Poland’s prime minister says he will no longer send arms to Ukraine and will instead focus on arming Poland with modern weaponry. The move comes amid a trade dispute that’s seen Poland ban imports of Ukrainian grain and other food products.
