In his remarks from the Roosevelt Room on Wednesday, President Biden announced the US would send 31 M-1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine. “They need an enduring capability to deter and defend from Russian aggression,” said Biden. The President said the US would give Ukraine the parts and training needed to use the M1 Abrams.
“Delivering these tanks to the field is going to take time,” warned Biden. He thanked the German Chancellor, adding, “Germany has really stepped up.”
Today’s announcement, according to Biden, “builds on the hard work and commitment of countries around the world, led by the United States of America, to help Ukraine defend its sovereignty and its territorial integrity. That’s what this is about, helping Ukraine defend, protect Ukrainian land. It is not an offensive threat to Russia. There is no offensive threat to Russia. If the troops returned to Russia where they belonged, this war would be over today.” Biden expressed confidence in the unity the allies have demonstrated so far.”We are united. America is united. So is the world.”
Biden mentioned that today is Zelenskyy’s birthday. “We’re with you for as long as it takes, Mr. President.”
