Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has every right to be happy after the House of Representatives finally approved a new aid package, which could soon arrive and help Ukrainians achieve their military and other goals. Weeks have been spent anticipating this scenario, and the impatience among Ukrainian leaders and the population could be felt at every moment. 

US President Joe Biden emphasized that such assistance would be crucial for Ukrainians, who have been in a difficult situation for some time now. 

Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenskyy reiterated day by day the necessity for US politicians to reach an agreement so that the aid package could arrive. He stressed that America's future depends on Ukraine's future, aware that Vladimir Putin may have potentially larger goals than these. 

Ukrainians feared that Russians would use this momentum to launch some kind of offensive. For now, the situation in Ukraine is calm, if it can be called that. Zelenskyy emphasized in a phone call that he is grateful to Joe Biden for supporting Ukraine since the first day of the war. 

The Ukrainian leader hasn't forgotten his soldiers, of whom he's particularly proud, and he expects that with this aid, Ukrainian soldiers will gain morale and be even more ready to defeat their adversary. Ukrainian soldiers have shown bravery from the beginning of the war by standing on the front lines and facing a formidable opponent. Their intention from day one has been to defend Ukraine and its people.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy has praised his soldiers countless times and thanked them for their huge courage and readiness to defend their country. After the aid arrives, Ukrainians will gain confidence, ready to do whatever it takes to bring an end to this war.

"This American support will save thousands and thousands of lives. The bill keeps history on the right track. Our warriors on the front lines, as well as our cities and villages suffering from Russian terror, will feel it. This support would bring a just end to this war closer, the war that Putin must lose."- Zelenskyy said.

The Ukrainian leader believes that this aid will strengthen Ukraine's defensive capabilities in the long term. The US president intends to continue assisting Ukrainians in this way. Now the US Senate needs to vote on the decision after the House of Representatives has already done so.

British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak confirmed that aid is coming to Ukraine from the United Kingdom

Ukrainians can be additionally happy, considering the statements of the British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, who promised the largest military support package from the United Kingdom for Ukraine to date. The British intend to send aid in the form of 400 vehicles, 60 boats, 4 million rounds of ammunition, as well as over 1600 missiles, and £500 million in military funding. 

The United Kingdom has once again expressed readiness to help Ukrainians in difficult times. Having such allies is certainly a reason for President Zelenskyy and all Ukrainians to be happy. This kind of assistance will greatly ease their future and ensure additional stability.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak emphasized the importance of defending Ukraine against Russia's aggressive actions, stating that it's crucial for the security of Europe as a whole. 

He highlighted the need to support Ukraine's armed forces on time to ensure they have the necessary resources to resist Russian aggression. Sunak also underscored the United Kingdom's commitment to European security and its role in supporting NATO allies.

Defense Secretary Grant Shapps highlighted the importance of the comprehensive military assistance package, emphasizing its role in equipping President Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian armed forces with the necessary resources to counter Russian aggression and restore peace and stability in Europe. 

Grant Shapps is well aware of the strength of the Russian military, as are other key political figures worldwide. If Ukraine lacks the necessary weaponry to combat such a formidable adversary, there is a huge chance they will lose this war. That's why the British expressed readiness to continue aiding Ukrainians in the upcoming period, hoping Ukranians can defend this state and potentially bring an end to the conflict.

Shapps stressed the UK's commitment by stating they were the first to supply NLAW missiles, modern tanks, and long-range missiles to Ukraine, and now they are extending their support even further. He expressed confidence in Ukraine's ability to survive in its existential battle with enduring assistance from the UK.

We will see how the aid from the two major allies and friends will affect the course of the war, and whether it will have any impact at all. The fact is that this further facilitates the Ukrainians' task, but the Russians certainly will not passively observe the situation. They intend to launch an offensive, but it is still unknown when.
