Historical decision: Biden signed a law on lend lease for Ukraine

On the day Russia celebrates Victory Day, US President Joe Biden signed a law on a lend lease for Ukraine, which includes increasing arms supplies and speeding up the supply of weapons to Ukraine.

The full title of the bill is The Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022.

The Lend-Lease Program is an aid provided by the United States to allies of the anti-Hitler coalition between 1941 and 1945. The United States then provided about $ 60 billion in aid to European countries. At current prices, this amount is $ 700 billion.

According to many experts, the introduction of a land lease program could greatly simplify the bureaucratic red tape in providing US assistance to Ukraine, as is currently the case. After all, now any process of arms supply goes through various American officials, which significantly slows down the whole process. According to experts, the lease is also useful for the United States itself, as this program will have a positive impact on the US economy and raise the rating of US President Joe Biden.

On April 28, the US House of Representatives approved a law on lend leases for Ukraine. As the senators explained this decision, they supported the proposal, as Ukrainian defenders proved that they can fight off Russian troops and show real heroism in the fight against the enemy.
