Biden’s announcement of 33 billion dollars to aid Ukraine has been met with different reactions. Recently, Biden had asked Congress to approve a 33 billion dollars aid package for Ukraine.

According to US president Biden, it was critical for Congress to approve the package. The 33 billion dollars package includes more than 20 billion in aid, 8.5 billion in economic aid, and 3 billion in humanitarian aid.

Nonetheless, this is not a first aid request. The first approved aid was last month which was less than 14 billion dollars. The United States has played a big role in aiding Ukraine during the war. It had before released 3.7 billion dollars for security, deployed more than 100,000 troops to NATO Member countries in Europe, and banned Russian Oil imports.
