Biden vows indefinite support for Ukraine

United States President Joe Biden says the US and its NATO allies will support Ukraine for “as long as it takes” as it faces down Moscow’s offensive.

“We are going to stick with Ukraine, and all of the [NATO] alliance are going to stick with Ukraine, as long as it takes to make sure they are not defeated by Russia,” Biden told reporters at the NATO summit.

“Ukraine has already dealt a severe blow to Russia,” he added, noting that he did not know how the conflict was going to end, but pledging “it will not end with a Russian defeat of Ukraine”.

Biden also said Washington will announce a new military aid package for Ukraine worth $800m in the coming days.
