US to provide Ukraine with weapons to defend against invading Russian force: Biden

US President Joe Biden on Monday (local time) announced to provide Ukraine with weapons against Russia’s military operations.

Taking to Twitter, the President also said that America will also allow Ukrainian refugees in the US, and send money, food, and other humanitarian aid to Kyiv.

“We will make sure Ukraine has weapons to defend against the invading Russian force. We will send money and food and aid to save Ukrainian lives. We will welcome Ukrainian refugees with open arms,” he said.

The President’s remark came after Britain said Russia could be planning to use chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine in response to a staged fake attack on Russian troops. The White House also sounded a similar warning a few days ago.

There are also reports that Moscow has sought military equipment from China in its invasion of Ukraine even as Beijing dismissed it as “disinformation”. Holding “intense talks” – that continued for seven hours – on Monday, the United States warned China against helping Moscow in its invasion. “We have communicated very clearly to Beijing that we won’t stand by,” State Department spokesperson Ned Price told reporters. “We will not allow any country to compensate Russia for its losses.”

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Antony Blinken tweeted: “I have authorized a drawdown of up to USD 200 million for additional arms and equipment to Ukraine. This unprecedented fourth drawdown in less than a year will bring total US security assistance provided to Ukraine to more than USD 1.2 billion since January 2021.”
