After the Biden administration finally pushed through a new $60 billion military aid package, the president himself announced that new weapons will be sent to Ukraine as early as this week.

“Tonight, a bipartisan majority in the Senate joined the House to answer history’s call at this critical inflection point. Congress has passed my legislation to strengthen our national security and send a message to the world about the power of American leadership: we stand resolutely for democracy and freedom, and against tyranny and oppression”, Biden said in a press release.

Earlier Wednesday, the president promised to sign the aid package “so we can begin sending weapons and equipment to Ukraine this week”.

“The need is urgent: for Ukraine, facing unrelenting bombardment from Russia; for Israel, which just faced unprecedented attacks from Iran; for refugees and those impacted by conflicts and natural disasters around the world, including in Gaza, Sudan, and Haiti; and for our partners seeking security and stability in the Indo-Pacific”, Biden added.

“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”, he concludes.

Since the start of the war in Ukraine, Western leaders have delivered aid packages estimated to be worth at least $380 billion, with the United States by far the largest donor.
