US aid ‘indispensable’ for defense of Ukraine, Scholz says – POLITICO

Citing the EU’s decision to allocate more funding for Ukraine at the extraordinary European Council summit last week, the German chancellor urged the U.S. Congress to do its part to defend Ukraine by green-lighting the further aid proposed by Biden.
