White Home Press Secretary Jen Psaki referred to as the Republican’s assertion nonsense, “The concept we’ve got held again safety help to Ukraine is nonsense. Simply final week—within the run-up to the U.S.-Russia Summit—we offered a $150 million package deal of safety help, together with deadly help. Now we have now offered all the quantity appropriated by Congress by way of the Ukraine safety help initiative. Two days earlier than the Summit, President Biden stood on the stage earlier than all the world at NATO and mentioned that we might hold placing Ukraine “within the place to have the ability to proceed to withstand Russian bodily aggression.” Now we have additionally ready contingency funds within the occasion of an additional Russian incursion into Ukraine. As President Biden informed President Putin instantly, we are going to stand unwavering in assist for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
Donald Trump was impeached for making an attempt to blackmail a overseas nation into investigating his political opponent by withholding congressionally appropriated army help.
Biden is pausing an help package deal that was put collectively by the Nationwide Safety Council in response to a Russian troop build-up. The Russians withdrew their troops from the border with Ukraine, and Biden put the aide package deal on pause.
