Biden Signs Lend-Lease Act to Aid Ukraine

On May 9, President Biden signed the bill that will boost the provision of military equipment to Ukraine during the ongoing Russian invasion.

After signing the 2022 Lend-Lease Act, President Biden passed the bill to the Republican and Democratic parties’ representatives, who were Ukrainian-born Victoria Spartz (R), Elissa Slotkin (D), and Sen. Ben Cardin (D), for signing.

“Every day Ukrainians fight for their lives,” Biden commented. “The cost of the fight is not cheap, but caving to aggression is even more costly.”

The Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022 empowers President Biden’s cooperation and assistance to Ukraine and other Eastern European countries. The Lend-Lease Bill revived a World War II-era programme signed by the 32nd president of the United States, Franklin Roosevelt. The program’s main aim was to provide military aid and other essential supplies to all European countries affected by the German Nazi regime.

Previously, the Speaker of the US House Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, visited Kyiv with a small Democratic delegation to state that “America stands firmly with Ukraine” and met with President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy. 

On Mother’s Day, first lady Jill Biden also made a surprise visit to the Ukrainian city Uzhhorod in Western Ukraine. She met with Ukrainian first lady Olena Zelenska.
