Biden says he told Zelensky ‘confident’ of renewed US war aid

US President Joe Biden tells his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky that he is “confident” Congress will renew war aid, but adds that without US help Kyiv could lose further territory to Russian advances.

“I spoke with Zelensky this afternoon to let him know that I was confident we’re going to get that money,” Biden tells reporters after attending church in Delaware.

Failure by US lawmakers to approve new funding for military aid to Kyiv would be “absurd” and “unethical,” he says, adding: “I’m going to fight to get them the ammunition they need.”
