President Joe Biden once again turned to Congress for assistance to Ukraine, urging them to "get it done," citing his X post.

"The costs of delaying a vote on the bipartisan national security supplemental rise every day," he said.

According to Biden, this bill will arm Ukraine, invest in the US defense industry base, aid Israel in defending against Hamas, and provide more humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian civilian population.

"Let's get this done," he urged.

US aid to Ukraine

The United States imposed sanctions on Russia on February 23, marking the second anniversary of the invasion of Ukraine and in response to the death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. Against this backdrop, Biden appealed to Congress to allocate over 60 billion euros in aid to Ukraine on February 23.

Currently, the issue of allocating 60 billion euros to Ukraine is so acute that according to Pentagon spokesperson Sabrina Singh, in the absence of US assistance, Ukraine will have to choose which towns its army will fight for based on available resources. Ukrainian Ambassador to the US, Oksana Markarova, said that Ukraine is facing a critical shortage of military equipment and this support "was needed yesterday."
