President of the United States Joe Biden commented on the provision of a new $300 million aid package to Ukraine, according to Reuters and the Telegram channel of the Russian service of BBC News.

Biden noted that this is an emergency aid package, which includes supplying ammunition and military equipment, that was successfully directed using funds saved during the execution of previous Pentagon contracts.

"It's not nearly enough," Biden said of the package, urging Republicans in the House of Representatives to pass the Senate-approved foreign aid package that includes $60 billion for Ukraine “before it's too late.”

The President of the United States stated that the US needs to act until the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin poses a threat to the free world.

"We must act before it literally is too late because, as Poland remembers, Russia won't stop at Ukraine. Putin will keep going, putting Europe and the United States and the entire free world at risk, in my view," Biden said.

US aid to Ukraine

For several months, the US Congress has been unable to approve new funding for aid to Ukraine to continue supplying weapons and more. This situation is due to differences between Republicans and Democrats on border protection issues, funding for which is included in the assistance package for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.

Recently, the Senate passed a separate bill with funds for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan. For it to take effect, the document must be approved by the House of Representatives and signed by the President.

Earlier, we reported that the USA is preparing military assistance to Ukraine for $400 million.

We also reported that, according to White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, the assistance to Ukrainian troops will last for several weeks.
