When Biden is expected to sign the law on Ukraine aid and how quickly the weapons will be delivered: all details

Biden promised to sign the law on assistance to Ukraine as soon as possible

U. S . President Joe Biden will sign a $61 billion military support bill for Ukraine on Wednesday, April 24, as soon as the document is on his desk. This will make it possible to start sending weapons and equipment to Ukraine this week.

After signing the document, Biden intends to address the American people. The statement by the American leader was published on the White House website. Biden emphasized that the need is urgent:

- for Ukraine, which is under continuous bombardment by Russia;

- for Israel, which has just faced unprecedented attacks from Iran;

- for refugees and survivors of conflicts and natural disasters around the world, including in Gaza, Sudan, and Haiti;

- for U.S. partners who seek security and stability in the Indo-Pacific region.

The White House President thanked Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, and all bipartisan lawmakers in the Senate who voted in favor of the bill.

"This critical legislation will make our country and the world safer as we stand with our friends as they defend themselves against terrorists like Hamas and tyrants like Putin," Biden said.

Pentagon spokesman Patrick Ryder said during a briefing that the United States could deliver aid to Ukraine within days after signing.

"In general, I would say that we expect to be able to deliver aid within a few days. I have nothing to announce right now in terms of what this aid will look like. We need a law first," Ryder said.

Earlier, on April 23 (night of April 24, Kyiv time), the US Senate (the upper house of Congress) supported a bill to provide assistance to Ukraine in the amount of about $61 billion. 79 senators voted in favor, while 18 voted against. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked the Senate for approving the law on military support for Ukraine. According to him, Ukraine's long-range capabilities, artillery, and air defense are extremely important tools for the speedy restoration of a just peace.
