“Russia is the aggressor, no ifs, ands, or buts about it” Joe Biden, President of the United States
US President Joe Biden asked Congress to approve a record $33 bn aid package for Ukraine, including more arms. He said the fight in Ukraine is the fight for freedom, and it not be cheap but it will be more costly if the world caves into Russian aggression.
The aid “will make their courage and sacrifice have purpose, so they can continue this fight,” Biden said, urging Congress to approve the funding “as quickly as possible.” The President, however, emphasized that the US is not attacking Russia.
“We’re not attacking Russia. We’re helping Ukraine defend itself against Russian aggression, and just as Putin chose to launch this brutal invasion, he could make the choice to end this brutal invasion. Russia is the aggressor, no ifs, ands, or buts about it,” he said.
