Joe Biden signed $40 billion aid package to Ukraine
U.S. President Joe Biden signed the $40 billion aid package to Ukraine on May 21, 2022, a White House official said, after the bill was flown to Seoul.
The Senate passed it following Biden’s departure from Washington, CNN reported.
The confirmation that Biden had signed the bill came as the President attended a state dinner with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol. Biden signed the aid package off-camera earlier Saturday, along with a bill to improve access to baby formula for families in need.
The legislation provides money for military and humanitarian aid, including funding to assist Ukrainian military and national security forces, help replenish stores of U.S. equipment sent to Ukraine, and provide public health and medical support for Ukrainian refugees.
