"The American people understand and admire the miracle that Ukraine has already achieved in defending itself against this vicious Russian aggression, and they also understand what happens if you cannot continue not only to survive but to thrive,” said Nuland.

She added, “I have great confidence that that understanding will be reflected in the vote that the Congress makes on this request of President Biden.”

Meanwhile, discussions are ongoing in the U.S. Congress around the issue of approving President Joe Biden's request for supplemental national security funding, which includes over $60 billion in aid to Ukraine.
