President Biden’s visit comes right after he wrapped up a summit with NATO leaders. World leaders unveiled their next phase to hit back at Moscow. Fresh sanctions are on the way as they aim to tighten the economic prowl on the Kremlin forces.

The NATO allies are also sending Ukraine new military assistance. On Europe’s eastern flank, NATO plans to bolster its own defense.

During the summit, President Biden announced that the U.S. will give an additional $1 billion dollars in humanitarian aid and open the U.S. border to refugees.

Ukraine’s president was thankful for the help, but also said he needed far more from the Western allies.

“One percent of all your planes,” said Volodymr Zelenskyy, “one percent of all your tanks.”
