Biden also announced that he had approved the deployment of additional helicopters, stating that the equipment handed to Ukraine had been “vital” in the face of the invasion.

“Now is not the time to relax. The American people will continue to stand with the brave Ukrainian people in their fight for independence, as I pledged President Zelenskyy,” he stated.

Russia labelled its activities in Ukraine a “special operation” aimed at destroying Ukraine’s military capabilities and apprehending “dangerous nationalists,” while Ukraine and the West say Russia launched an unprovoked attack.

Russia announced on Wednesday that it had taken control of Mariupol, a port in southern Ukraine and that more than 1,000 Ukrainian marines had surrendered.
