Biden signs Ukraine lend-lease act into law

U.S. President Joe Biden has signed into law the Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022.

The signing ceremony took place at the White House on Monday, May 9, according to Ukrinform.

The Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act was passed last month by both chambers of the U.S. Congress. The Senate unanimously supported the document on April 6, and the House of Representatives voted for the measure on April 28.

The document allows the U.S. president to use the military lend-lease program to speed up the transfer of weapons, military equipment, medicines, food, etc. to Ukraine. It is expected that the recipient country will pay their cost later.

The military lend-lease program was used during World War II. It allowed the United States to quickly provide weapons to its allies.
