Biden promises to provide Ukraine with lethal weapons in case of victory.

Censor.NET reports citing Voice of America.

Biden said this in a statement on the occasion of the 29th anniversary of Ukraine's independence, Voice of America (VOA) reported.

"As President, I will make it clear to the Kremlin that it must end its aggression toward and occupation of Ukraine. A Biden-Harris administration will ensure that Ukraine gets the economic and military support that it needs, including lethal weapons, while urging Ukraine to pursue the essential reforms that are vital to its success," Biden said.

According to VOA, the administration of President Barack Obama, in which Joe Biden served as vice-president for eight years, has been criticized by the Republican Party for refusing to provide Ukraine with lethal weapons. Defensive weapons, in particular Javelin anti-tank missiles, were provided to Ukraine by the administration of the incumbent President Donald Trump.
