Biden Assures US Will Commence Weapons Delivery To Ukraine

The United States (US) President, Joe Biden on Wednesday said America will start delivering weapons and equipment to Ukraine this week.

President Biden made this known shortly after the US Senate approved billions of dollars in new aid for the country under attack from Russia.

“I will sign this bill into law and address the American people as soon as it reaches my desk tomorrow so we can begin sending weapons and equipment to Ukraine this week,” Biden said.

According to him, bypassing the legislative package, which also includes billions of dollars in aid for Israel and Taiwan, the U.S. Congress has demonstrated the power of American leadership in the world.

“We stand resolutely for democracy and freedom, and against tyranny and oppression.

“There is an urgent need for support for Ukraine, which is being subjected to relentless bombardment from Russia,” Biden said.

The bill also contains aid for Israel, which has recently faced unprecedented attacks from Iran.

“This critical legislation will make our nation and world more secure as we support our friends who are defending themselves against terrorists like Hamas and tyrants like Putin,” Biden said.
