Biden vows to support Ukraine “as long as it takes”
The US will support Ukraine for as long as it takes. President Joe Biden stated this at a press conference following the NATO summit.
«We intend to support Ukraine as much as necessary»— Biden said when asked if there was a deadline for American support for Ukraine.
After that, Biden slipped the tongue, saying that Washington and its allies intend to continue helping Kyiv to prevent victory Ukraine, but then he corrected himself.
“The entire [North Atlantic] alliance will stick with Ukraine for as long as it takes to really ensure they are not defeated by Ukraine. Sorry, [not defeated] in Ukraine by Russia, — he said.
The NATO summit took place from 28 to 30 May. At it, the members of the alliance agreed to increase the number of rapid reaction forces of the alliance by almost eight times— up to 300 thousand people. Now it is 40 thousand fighters, who should be ready to start combat missions within 15 days.

In addition, all 30 members of the alliance promised Ukraine political and practical support, in particular, the acceleration and increase in the supply of weapons.
