United States President Joe Biden will sign the Lend-Lease Act for Ukraine on May 9.

This was stated by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki while talking to reporters on board the presidential plane.

“On Monday, the president will sign the Lend-Lease Law to protect democracy in Ukraine for 2022,” Psaki said.

She confirmed that Biden would attend a G7 video meeting on Monday, which Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky would also join via video link.

“They will discuss the latest developments in Russia’s war against Ukraine and the global impact of Putin’s war, support for Ukraine and demonstrate the unity of the G7 in a collective response,” Psaki added.

On April 28, the US House of Representatives approved a bill on the opening of Lend-Lease for Ukraine. During World War II, the US also made lend-lease (a comprehensive military aid program) to the Soviet Union to support the destruction of Nazi Germany.
