Biden apologizes to Zelensky for delayed military aid

President Biden met with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine and apologized for the delay in approving military aid, blaming the conservative Republican opposition.

I apologize for the weeks of not knowing what was going to happen in terms of funding, and because we had problems getting the bill that we needed to pass and where the money was in it. Some of our very conservative members resisted it, but in the end it worked out. And since then, including today, I’ve announced six packages of significant funding. Today I’m also signing an additional $225 million package to help you rebuild the power grid. And once we passed the national security law – that was a political issue – we were able to get everything done. And the way you persevered, persevered in Kharkov, and you proved once again that the people of Ukraine cannot and will never be overtaken. And I assure you that the United States will stand by you. I’ve said that all the time in this debate. I keep saying it. The United States is by your side. You are the bulwark against the aggression that is taking place. We have a duty to be there. And that’s why I look forward to having a detailed conversation with you about where we go from here.
