$ 40 billion: Joe Biden signs the law providing colossal assistance to Ukraine

At the very moment when Russia announced this Saturday the bombardment of a convoy of Western weapons, American President Joe Biden endorsed colossal aid from the United States to kyiv. From South Korea, the president signed a law adopted Thursday by Congress providing a gigantic envelope of 40 billion dollars for the Ukrainian war effort against Russia.

The law includes six billion dollars to allow Ukraine to equip itself with armored vehicles and strengthen its anti-aircraft defense.

On Friday, the G7 countries meeting in Germany also promised to mobilize 19.8 billion dollars (18.7 billion euros) to help Ukraine "fill its financial gap".

An uncertain conflict

"The end (of the conflict) will be diplomatic," Volodymyr Zelensky said in an interview with the private Ukrainian television channel ICTV, during which he assured that 700,000 Ukrainian fighters were fighting against Russia. The war "will be bloody, it will be fighting, but it will definitely end through diplomacy," he said. “Discussions between Ukraine and Russia will resolutely take place. I don't know in what format: with intermediaries, without them, in a wider circle, at the presidential level."

In the meantime, Russian President Vladimir Putin is trying to circumvent the financial sanctions of Western allies, in particular by demanding that they pay for their gas in rubles. Finland, which refused these conditions, saw its supply of natural gas cut off on Saturday by the Russian supplier Gazprom.
