Joe Biden announced Tuesday that the U.S. will be sending another $625 million in military assistance to Ukraine. The new figure brings the total amount of U.S. support for Ukraine to over $17.5 billion, most of which was provided after Russia invaded on February 24.
While Biden promised Ukrainian President, Volodymir Zelensky on Tuesday that the U.S. will, “continue supporting Ukraine as it defends itself from Russian aggression for as long as it takes” he continues to empty the country’s military reserves as much of the promised military aid is to come directly from U.S. stockpiles.
