Insane in the membrane: Biden pledges $200 million for Ukraine after Zelensky meeting | 12 Dec 2023 | Joe Biden has promised another $200 million in emergency military aid for Ukraine. He made the pledge during an Oval Office meeting with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky on Tuesday. The meeting comes after a bill intended to provide $60 billion in aid for Kiev was blocked in the U.S. Senate last week, as Republicans demanded tougher immigration control on the southern U.S. border in exchange for approving Ukraine assistance. Speaking to reporters after the Tuesday meeting, Biden insisted that Congress "pass the supplemental funding for Ukraine" before breaking for recess, adding that failure to do so would be "the greatest Christmas gift" to Russian President Vladimir Putin [and every U.S. citizen].
