US President Joe Biden signed a $40 billion package of new military, economic and humanitarian aid to Ukraine Saturday, NBC News reports.
The aid package, which will help Ukraine to replenish U.S. stocks of military equipment, provide hardship pay for troops and aid to refugees was signed by the president on a visit to South Korea, where he met with his counterpart, President Yoon Suk-yeol.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Ukraine's president, thanked Biden for the “additional support” in a tweet. “Look forward to new, powerful defense assistance,” he wrote. “Today it is needed more than ever.”
