Ukraine Has High Hopes of Not Being Abandoned After Approval of U.S. Aid

( – Ukraine’s President has spoken out about the recent aid passed by the United States saying that although it’s long overdue it proves that Ukraine will not be left behind. Volodymyr Zelenskiy, the president of Ukraine said that Ukraine would not be a “second Afghanistan.” He compared Ukraine to Afghanistan because of the government collapse that occurred a couple of years back after the United States pulled out of the war.

He also said that they would be preparing their defenses as they expected a larger Russian hit to take place before the aid reached their country. Zelenskiy said, “We really need to get this to the final point. We need to get it approved by the Senate so that we get some tangible assistance for the soldiers on the frontline as soon as possible, not in another six months.”

This week the Senate will hold its first vote on the aid package, and Joe Biden has said that he would sign off on the aid the moment it reaches his desk. There has been a lot of back and forth since those that aligned with Trump have not wanted to pass the aid to Ukraine, which was at the time also part of aid for Israel and Taiwan.

Prior to this, the country exhausted all of the aid that was originally given to Ukraine which prompted the push for new aid, as this left Ukrainian frontlines weak and unprepared against Russia.

U.S. officials have said that they do have weapons ready to transport to Ukraine once Joe Biden gives them a decision on what exactly will be done after the aid is approved.
