More shells are reportedly being consumed by Ukraine each month than the EU defence sector is currently able to produce. Zelensky praised Biden’s trip as a crucial demonstration of solidarity. Beijing reacted angrily to American allegations that China was considering arming Russia. Further helping it in its conflict in Ukraine as the visit took place.

How the Ukraine-Russia war started?
In February 2022, Vladimir Putin said that his country’s military is engaging in a “special military operation” in Ukraine. Russian armies attacked Kyiv in full force on February 24, 2022. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has urged his citizens to remain in the war-torn country and fight against foreign invaders rather than leave.
Putin, on the other hand, resumed the Kremlin’s military offensives and claimed that Russia’s goal in invading Ukraine was to disable Kyiv’s “military infrastructure.”
With no sign of a breakthrough in the ceasefire agreement, Russia is still attacking Ukraine.
