Ukraine will get $800 million in security support, which will include anti-aircraft systems, drones, and body armour. The support does not include the no-fly zone or the fighter planes that Volodymyr Zelensky requested. “This might be a long and arduous struggle,” Biden said. President Obama signed a large spending bill into law on Tuesday that included $800 million in increased security aid for Ukraine. The Biden administration is also working on penalties on senior Russian officials and members of President Vladimir Putin’s close circle, with the goal of increasing the number of targets. In just over two weeks, the US has delivered nearly $300 million of the $350 million that Biden approved for Ukraine. Biden and NATO have been pressed by Zelensky to do more. As he addressed to Congress, he reiterated his proposal for a no-fly zone over Ukraine.
