US President Joe Biden decided to immediately allocate $600 million to Ukraine: $250 million for general aid and $350 million for military assistance. The White House turned to Congress for approval to allocate $6.4 billion to support Ukraine, of which $3.5 billion—for defense.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken reported he had already approved an allocation of $350 million to immediately support Ukraine's defense.

"Today, as Ukraine fights with courage and pride against Russia’s brutal and unprovoked assault, I have authorized, pursuant to a delegation by the President, an unprecedented third presidential drawdown of up to $350m for immediate support to Ukraine’s defense. This brings the total security assistance the United States has committed to Ukraine over the past year to more than $1 billion," the Secretary of State wrote.

Assistance will include the supply of lethal weapons.
