Following the approval of the US military aid package, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that Ukraine would not become “another Afghanistan.”

Sky News recently cited the Ukrainian President, stating that the United States is not only a financial supporter of Ukraine but also a guardian of democracy worldwide.

The Ukrainian President emphasized that the US Congress’s aid package sends a powerful message and demonstrates American leadership.

He further added that these aid packages send a strong message to the Kremlin and indicate that Ukraine will not become another Afghanistan.

Russia’s territorial grip on Ukraine has grown to about 18% after Kyiv’s unsuccessful 2023 counter-offensive. The ongoing warfare, marked by ceaseless artillery barrages and drone assaults, has entrenched Russian forces behind formidable defenses, stalling Ukrainian progress.

Ukraine has persistently appealed to the international community, particularly the United States, for increased financial and military assistance to combat Russian aggression. However, Russian officials remain defiant, asserting that additional aid will not alter the conflict’s ultimate outcome. As the war rages on, diplomatic efforts to de-escalate tensions have faltered, leaving civilians in both countries vulnerable to the devastating impact of ongoing hostilities.

After months of Congressional deadlock, the US Congress approved a $95 billion aid package to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, with $60.8 billion from the total sum allocated to Ukraine.
