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 supplied a $150 million bundle of safety help, together with deadly help. Now we have now supplied all the quantity appropriated by Congress via 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 stated that we’d maintain 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 extra Russian incursion into Ukraine. As President Biden instructed President Putin straight, we are going to stand unwavering in help for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
