Biden administration approves $200 million more in military aid to Ukraine

Announcement by State Department brings total aid to $1.2 billion as Russian attacks intensified and efforts to reach ceasefire failed.

Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announced Saturday night the Biden administration has approved $200 million more in emergency military aid to Ukraine as Russian forces intensified their attacks in multiple cities as military and civilian losses mounted in the three-week-old war.

“I have authorized a drawdown of up to $200 million for additional arms and equipment to Ukraine,” Blinken tweeted just hours after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky made another unsuccessful plea for no-fly zone to slow Russia’s aerial bombardment.
