Not only the direct supply of weapons, defense support, the promise of new sanctions against Russia. Now there is talk of financing to support the Ukrainian economy, from a military and humanitarian point of view. This is the new front of support for Kiev that the US President inaugurated yesterday Joe Biden In chatting with the Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky. In this case it is 500 million dollars of direct assistance.

But the promise of economic support for military purposes also allays complaints from Zelensky, who in recent days has complained about not receiving the support NATO countries hope for in providing anti-aircraft defenses and declaring a no-fly zone. It is advantageous for Biden to regain a priority role among Western countries in the confrontation with Kaiser, trying to be present on the field at least with the weight of his dollars. In the interview, however, there was also talk, in a broader way, of college financial aid it is in humanitarian purpose To support the devastated Ukrainian economy. This package also includes Biden’s promise of new severe sanctions “to impose huge costs on Russia for its brutal aggression.”
