Biden signs $40bn aid bill for Ukraine’s war effort

President Biden has signed a bill that confirms $40bn of new aid for Ukraine’s war effort, the White House says.

The money represents the largest package of American assistance since Russia launched its invasion in February.

The bill, which will funnel support to Ukraine for about the next five months, includes around $6 billion budgeted for armored vehicles and air defences.

Biden is currently in South Korea, during a four-day trip through Asia.
