President Joe Biden has expressed his confidence to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy that the United States Congress will approve renewed military aid to Ukraine, despite recent advances by Russian forces.

In a statement, President Biden said, “I spoke with Zelenskyy this afternoon to let him know that I was confident we’re going to get that money.” President Biden’s comments come in the wake of Russia capturing the Ukrainian city of Avdiivka.

Biden emphasized the need for US assistance, suggesting that the absence of support could lead to further territorial losses for Ukraine, and criticized withholding aid as “absurd” and “unethical.”

In addition to President Biden, the White House released a statement pointing out the dire situation faced by Ukrainian forces, including the need to ration ammunition due to “dwindling supplies as a result of congressional inaction.”

The issue of military aid has sparked a heated debate within the US political landscape, with Vice President Kamala Harris criticizing Republicans for delaying the aid due to “political gamesmanship.” House Speaker Mike Johnson, who is currently delaying a vote on the aid package, has called for a focus on domestic priorities, such as border security, over international aid.
