Biden announces $800M more in military aid to 'fend off Russia's assault': Live Ukraine updates

Date:


President Joe Biden announced Wednesday that an additional $800 million in military aid will be sent to Ukraine, just hours after President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s address to Congress, a speech he called “convincing.”

Biden said the U.S. is adding to its assistance, which now totals $1 billion just this week, to help “fend off Russia’s assault.”

“America is leading this effort, together with our allies and partners, providing enormous levels of security and humanitarian assistance that we’re adding to today and we’re going to continue to do more than days weeks ahead,” he said, adding the fight is “about the right of people to determine their own future, about making sure Ukraine never will be a victory for Putin, no matter what advances he makes on the battlefield.”
