Biden assures Ukrainians that Washington won’t abandon them
Just as we've told Afghans some time ago
U.S. President Joe Biden has pledged that the United States will not abandon Ukraine. On Saturday, a last-minute agreement was reached in Washington on an emergency budget.
The emergency budget does not include support for Ukraine, which means that additional aid to Ukraine will be frozen for the next 45 days. However, Biden now wants to emphasize to the Ukrainian people that they can continue to rely on support from Washington.
“There is a sense of urgency to approve new funding for Ukraine in the coming days and weeks. Look at me, we will get this done,” he stated.
Simultaneously, he criticized Republicans who are demanding significant cuts in the U.S. budget.
“Enough is enough, I’ve had enough of this maneuvering. This politics must stop; we cannot afford a new crisis.”
Earlier, Kiev had already stated that it is actively collaborating with Washington for additional financial assistance. Oleh Nikolenko, the spokesperson for the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, responded, “This situation will not prevent the flow of aid from continuing to arrive in Ukraine.”
