President Joe Biden instructed the U.S. State Department to release $350 million in military aid to Ukraine on Friday as it struggles to repulse a Russian invasion.
In a memorandum to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Biden directed that $350 million allocated through the Foreign Assistance Act be designated for Ukraine’s defence.
This is coming after the Biden administration took a rare step of freezing the personal assets of Russian leader, President Vladimir Putin.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that imposing sanctions on Putin “sends a clear message about the strength of the opposition to the actions by President Putin and the direction in his leadership of the Russian military.”
