Statement by President Joe Biden on Additional Security Assistance to Ukraine

Today, the United States continues its strong support for the brave people of Ukraine as they defend their country against continued Russian aggression. I am announcing another security assistance program that will provide additional artillery munitions, radars and other equipment to Ukraine.

The United States has provided a historic amount of security assistance to Ukraine at rapid speed. We are sending the weapons and equipment that Congress has authorized directly to the front lines of freedom in Ukraine. The support of the United States, along with the contributions of our allies and partners, has been essential in helping Ukraine win the battle for kyiv and frustrate Putin’s war aims in Ukraine.

With today’s announcement, my administration has almost exhausted the funds that can be used to send security assistance through the levy authorities for Ukraine. For Ukraine to succeed in this next phase of the war, its international partners, including the United States, must continue to demonstrate our unity and our determination to continue to deliver arms and ammunition to Ukraine, without disruption. . Congress should quickly provide the funds requested to strengthen Ukraine on the battlefield and at the negotiating table.
