Biden announces R$1.1 billion in aid to Ukraine and apologizes to Zelensky for delay

US President Joe Biden said this Friday (7) that he will sign a US$225 million (R$1.1 billion) aid package for Ukraine.

The announcement took place during a bilateral meeting with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky. The American leader apologized to the European for the delay earlier this year in approving a new military aid package, which was delayed by Republican opposition in Congress.

“You have not bowed, you have not surrendered, you continue to fight in a way that is just remarkable, is just remarkable, and we will not turn away from you,” Biden told the Ukrainian president.

“I apologize for the weeks of not knowing what was going to be passed, in terms of funding, because we had trouble getting the bill that we needed to pass and that had the money from some of our very conservative members who were holding it up, but we got it done. ”, he added.

“Since then, including today, I have announced six significant funding packages. Today I am also signing an additional $225 million package to help you rebuild the power grid,” he concluded.
