Biden Meets Zelensky in France as U.S. Announces Plans to Send $225M to Ukraine

HeadlineJun 07, 2024

The Biden administration has announced it will send another $225 million in military aid to Ukraine, including munitions that could be used to strike targets inside Russia. Earlier today, President Biden met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Paris and apologized for the monthslong holdup in new U.S. assistance for Ukraine.
On Thursday, Biden spoke about Ukraine during a speech in Normandy, France, to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day, when 150,000 Allied soldiers invaded France to drive out the Nazis.

President Joe Biden: “And make no mistake: The autocrats of the world are watching closely to see what happens in Ukraine, to see if we let this illegal aggression go unchecked. We cannot let that happen. To surrender to bullies, to bow down to dictators is simply unthinkable.”
