Not long ago in December, Congress sent $45 billion in aid to Ukraine.

“We asked for that money because we believe that we need that money to help Ukraine for the first quarter of the fiscal year,” National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby said. (Trending: 22 Chilling Facts About Biden’s Impeachment)
“It would support the same kinds of systems and capabilities that we’ve been providing Ukraine for the last 18 months.”
“And because we have no expectation that this counter offensive is going to end anytime soon, certainly, there’s a valid need − a critical need − for those capabilities, in the coming months, certainly as we get to fall and into the winter,” Kirby said.

“I hope we’ll get it in autumn. For us it’s very important not to do the pause in this counteroffensive, and I need it very much,” Zelenskyy said.
