“We cannot under any circumstances allow American for Ukraine to be interrupted," Joe Biden said.

US President Joe Biden said that he was "stick and tired of the brinkmanship" after a partial shutdown of the federal government was narrowly averted. American aid to Ukraine will keep flowing for now, Joe Biden said as he sought to reassure allies of continued US financial support for Kyiv's war effort. But time is running out, the president warned.
