(RoyalPatriot.com )- While the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, travels to the United States to secure additional assistance for the ongoing war, Russian President Vladimir Putin has promised that his country’s armed forces will have access to an unlimited supply of funding.
Vladimir Putin reportedly said in a speech to the Russian Ministry of Defense, “There are no limitations placed on our funding. The nation as a whole and the government are supplying the army with everything that it requires.”
According to Reuters’ account of Putin’s speech, the Russian leader continued by asking the Ministry of Defense to be attentive to all civilian initiatives, including taking into account criticism and responding promptly and promptly.
The remarks by Putin came just before Zelensky’s trip to the United States amid the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. It’s been nearly ten months since Putin announced the “special military operation” on February 24.
“On my way to the US to strengthen resilience and defense capabilities of Ukraine. In particular, @POTUS and I will discuss cooperation between Ukraine and U.S. I will also have a speech at the Congress and a number of bilateral meetings.”
Ahead of U.S. President Joe Biden’s meeting with Zelensky, the White House said the president “will announce a significant new package of nearly $2 billion of security assistance for Ukraine.”
The White House has said that the Patriot missile battery included in the Ukraine package “will be a critical asset to defend the Ukrainian people against Russia’s barbaric attacks on Ukraine’s critical infrastructure.”
As the conflict between Russia and Ukraine has dragged on, the United States has repeatedly offered assistance to Ukraine in the form of military aid, humanitarian aid, and economic aid. According to research conducted by the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, up until the 20th of November, the United States had contributed approximately $48 billion to Ukraine, of which $22.9 billion was designated for military assistance.
