BIDEN SEEKS NEW AID FOR UKRAINE AS RUSSIA MAKES SLOW PROGRESS IN SEIZING EAST
President Biden sent Congress a $33 billion solicitation to support more weapons and give longer-term monetary help to Kyiv, as Russia's military is bit by bit holding onto a more area in Ukraine's east, pushing south from the city of Izyum with the clear point of removing Ukrainian powers.
Mr. Biden said Thursday that the $13.6 billion in subsidizing that Congress had at first given to Ukraine to assist with covering the initial two months of the conflict was almost exhausted and that undeniably more was required, depicting the contention as being at a significant point. The push for more Ukraine help has earned wide bipartisan help in Congress and signs how the U.S. also, its European partners are getting ready for a more drawn out war that could crush on for a really long time.
Thursday's proposition, as portrayed by organization authorities, remembers $20.4 billion for military and security help. It comes a day after Russian President Vladimir Putin promised a quick reaction to any more prominent Western inclusion in the contention.
