US to provide USD 13.6 billion in funding to Ukraine: Joe Biden

Washington (US):

The United States will provide USD 13.6 billion in funding to Ukraine, US President Joe Biden said.

This comes amid Russia’s ongoing military operations in Ukraine.

“I just signed the Bipartisan Government Funding Bill into law — keeping the government open and providing a historic $13.6 billion in funding to Ukraine,” Joe Biden tweeted.

Further targeting Russian President Vladimir Putin, Biden wrote, “Putin’s aggression against Ukraine has united people across America and the world to act with urgency and resolve. I want to thank Congressional leadership for working so quickly to make sure we have the resources we need to continue our forceful response to this crisis.”

Russian forces launched military operations in Ukraine on February 24, three days after Moscow recognized Ukraine’s breakaway regions, Donetsk and Luhansk as independent republics followed by the announcement of a “special military operation” to “demilitarize” and “denazify” Ukraine.
