President Biden has approved military aid close to a billion dollars to be transfer to Ukraine. Also note that United states has sent several defensive military aid to Ukraine since the beginning of the invasion by Russia.
Russia has also stepped up air strikes on Kyiv on Saturday, killing at least one person at a tank factory a day after Moscow warned it would renew attacks following two weeks of relative calm in the Ukrainian capital.
Russia also threatened to deploy nuclear weapons near the Baltic sea if Finland and Sweden apply to join NATO, but eastern flank allies regard the threat as a laughable effort to intimidate the Nordic states.
The European union has banned Russian coal, the latest escalation in sanctions as the war in Ukraine drags on and evidence emerges of potential Russian war crimes in the region.
According to reports by Parliament Commisioner for human rights Liudmyla denisova, Russian occupation authorities mobilize 16-year teenagers of the occupied Donetsk and Luhansk regions for war against Ukraine. Report says one of the mobilized children has been already killed in battle.
Romania has banned Russian ships from entering its ports since April 17. At the same time, Ukrainian vessels are exempted from harbor services fees in Romanian harbors. Says Ministry of transport of Romania.
President Joe Biden has options to support Ukraine, and isn’t using them. There are only two credible explanations for this failure; the first being that the Biden administration is too risk-averse and fearful of putin’s escalation, says Tom RT.
