Will there be new American aid? – Biden invites Zelensky to visit the White House

Date:

US President Joe Biden has invited Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to visit the White House next Tuesday. The White House said Biden wanted to underscore the U.S.’s unwavering commitment to supporting Ukraine. However, further military aid is currently blocked by Congress.

Biden and Zelensky wanted to discuss Ukraine’s urgent needs on the battlefield and also talk about continuing U.S. assistance at this crucial stage, the White House said on Sunday. According to the government in Washington, the funds previously approved by parliament for Ukraine will be completely used up by the end of the year.

Blockade due to domestic political disputes
However, the release of new US aid is currently blocked by a domestic political dispute between Democrats and Republicans in the US Parliament. More and more Republicans are expressing doubts about support for Ukraine or rejecting it entirely.

No movement in sight
A recently adopted interim budget again contains no new funds for Ukraine, although US President Joe Biden had already requested large sums of billions for Kiev from Congress in October. With increasing vehemence and sometimes dramatic appeals, Biden and his team have been calling on Congress to act for weeks. But so far there is no movement in sight.
