Since Biden took office, the US has given Ukraine more than $3 billion in aid

WASHINGTON – President Biden spoke to his counterpart in Ukraine a day after calling Russia’s actions “genocide.”

“He called it genocide not once, but twice because, as he said yesterday, it’s becoming clearer and clearer every day that it’s Putin’s idea to erase what it means to be Ukrainian,” the press secretary said White House, Jen Psaki.

During their call on Wednesday, the commander-in-chief announced an additional $800 million in arms, ammunition and other security assistance.

“Designed to help Ukraine in the fight they are right and will fight,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said.
