U.S. President Joe Biden signed into law a law introducing lend-lease for Ukraine. It will speed up the delivery of military aid and help us fight the invaders.
During World War II, Lend-Lease was a system that provided material aid to the European allies from the United States. It was first enacted in March 1941, when the war in Europe had already lasted nearly a year and a half.
The U.S. partially or gratuitously transferred to the Allies
- strategic raw materials, including petroleum products.
At one time the Lend-Lease played an important role in the fight against Nazism.
President Volodymyr Zelensky called the signing of the Lend-Lease Act for Ukraine a historic step.
"I am convinced that we will win together again. And protect democracy in Ukraine and Europe. As we did 77 years ago," the head of state said on Twitter.
Andriy Yermak, head of the Office of the President, also reacted on his Twitter page to the approval of the Lend-Lease Act for Ukraine.
"Grateful to Biden and the people of the United States for their powerful support. Our defenders need weapons as soon as possible. Effective. Powerful. Modern. Let's win!", stated Yermak.
