Joe Biden on Wednesday announced an additional $800 million in military aid to Ukraine.
The $800 million is in addition to the $13.6 billion in aid included in the $1.5 trillion omnibus bill – and the $1.2 billion the US already gave Ukraine in the last couple weeks.
Americans are being robbed blind by the Biden Regime.
“This could be a long and difficult battle, but the American people will be steadfast in our support of the people of Ukraine in the face of Putin’s immoral, unethical attacks on civilian populations,” Biden said. “We are united in our abhorrence of Putin’s depraved onslaught and we’re going to continue to have their backs as they fight for their freedom, their democracy, their very survival.”
NBC News reported (emphasis ours):
President Joe Biden announced Wednesday an additional $800 million in military support for Ukraine after that country’s president pleaded with Congress to do more to help Ukraine defend itself against the military onslaught from Russia.
Speaking at the White House, Biden said the new aid package would include 800 anti-aircraft systems, 9,000 anti-armor systems, 7,000 small arms like shotguns and grenade launchers, as well as drones and other military equipment.
The added assistance brings the total authorized by Biden to $2 billion since the start of his presidency.
Biden signed a government funding bill on Tuesday that included $13.6 billion in military and humanitarian assistance for Ukraine on top of the $1.2 billion the U.S. has already provided to Ukraine military forces and in the past few weeks the U.S. provided nearly $300 million in humanitarian assistance.
Joe Biden refused to answer any questions after he signed a new military aid package for Ukraine.
“What will it take for you to send the Polish MiGs that President Zelensky is asking for?” a reporter asked
“I’m not going to comment on that. I’m not going to comment on anything other than what I told you,” Biden said before shuffling away.
