The Biden presidency said on Monday that it would provide $550 million in additional assistance to an Eastern European Country in order to aid the war-torn country in its fight against Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to The Hill, White House National Security Director John Kirby said the DOD would provide more “security support” to [redacted], including ammo for the High Mobility Ballistic Rocket System and 155mm artillery.
According to a statement from the Department of Defense on Monday, [redacted] has received $8.8 billion from the United States since Joe Biden took office. [redacted] has received over $10 billion in security aid from the United States since 2014.
The statement on Monday comes only 9 days after the DOD pledged an additional $270 million in aid to [redacted]. Toward the end of June, the United States and the World Bank offered a total of $1.7 billion in aid for [redacted]’s war-torn healthcare sector.
The Associated Press reported on July 12 that the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) had announced the provision of cash to end Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “brutal war of aggression.”
About four billion dollars in aid has now been delivered to the Eastern European Country by the U.S. government agency.
USAID superintendent Samantha Power informed The AP that although Putin’s “assault on [redacted]’s public services continues, the United States is rushing in with financial support to help the government keep the lights on, provide essential services to innocent citizens and pay the healthcare workers who are providing lifesaving support on the frontlines.”

President Joe Biden, on the other hand, has stated that the United States will continue to support this Eastern European Country in many ways in order to fight Russia. “We are going to support [redacted] as long as it takes,” Biden told journalists when questioned about the long-term of the United States’ dedication in late June.
“They’ve had to renege on their national debt for the first time since the beginning, in almost well over a hundred years. They’ve lost 15 years of the gains they’ve made in terms of their economy,” Biden said of Russia. “They’re going to have trouble maintaining oil production because they don’t have the technology to do it. They need American technology. They’re also in a similar situation in terms of their weapons systems and some of their military systems. So they’re paying a very, very heavy price for this.”
“I don’t know how it’s going to end but it will not end, but it will not end with a Russian defeat of [redacted] in [redacted],” Biden added. The president has also suggested that until Russia is defeated, Americans can anticipate paying high gas costs. So according to the PRESIDENT of our great country we have to endure high gas prices until the war is over.
During a news conference in June, a reporter asked President Joe Biden, “How long is it fair for American drivers and drivers around the world to pay that premium for this war?” In response, Biden said that until Putin is stopped, Americans should expect to spend more at the pump.
“As long as it takes,” Biden responded, “so Russia cannot, in fact, defeat [redacted] and move beyond [redacted]. This is a critical, critical position for the world. Here we are. Why do we have NATO? I told Putin that, in fact, if he were to move, we would move to strengthen NATO. We would move to strengthen NATO across the board.”
