Biden Promises Zelensky Additional USD$1b In Security Assistance

SECURITY

US President Joe Biden has promised Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky an additional UDS$1 billion in security assistance during a 40 minute call today. The call is the first between the two leaders in several weeks and comes amid repeated Ukrainian calls for additional weaponry as Russia gains territory in Eastern Ukraine.

  • The White House, per readout: “is providing another $1 billion in security assistance for Ukraine, including additional artillery and coastal defense weapons, as well as ammunition for the artillery and advanced rocket systems that the Ukrainians need to support their defensive operations in the Donbas.”
  • Biden also promised Zelensky “an additional $225 million in humanitarian assistance to help people inside Ukraine, including by supplying safe drinking water, critical medical supplies and health care, food, shelter, and cash for families to purchase essential items.”
  • Comes as US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin convenes the Ukraine Contact Group to coordinate military aid to Ukraine for 45+ countries.
  • Austin and US Joint Chief of Staff Chair Mark Milley are shortly due to give a presser following the UCG meeting from NATO HQ in Brussels.
