The Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022 is intended to enable the United States to more efficiently send weapons and other supplies to war-torn Ukraine as well as NATO allies affected by Russian President Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine, Polish state news agency PAP reported.
"I'm signing a bill that provides another important tool in our efforts to support the government of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people in their fight to defend their country and their democracy against Putin's brutal war," Biden said on Monday.
“The cost of the fight is not cheap, but caving to aggression is even more costly,” he added.
The new US law revives a World War II-era measure that allowed America to quickly resupply allies in the fight against Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany eight decades ago, officials have said.
