Sources familiar with the call told NBC News on Monday that United States President Joe Biden lost his temper when speaking with Ukrainian politician Volodymyr Zelenskyy on the phone, asking for more military aid. The report mentioned that Biden consistently calls Zelenskyy every time the US announces a new assistance package for Ukraine. However, June’s call was different. After informing Zelenskyy of his decision to allocate another USD 1 billion to Ukraine’s military, Biden grew irate, as reported by NBC. According to the NBC report, Biden loudly complained that Zelenskyy ought to show some gratitude.

According to the sources, Biden’s dissatisfaction with Zelenskyy had been building for weeks before the June 15 phone call.

As they stated, the US president and some of his aides believed Washington was doing everything it could, but Zelenskyy continued to pay attention only to what was not being done.

Zelenskyy donated a video message thanking Biden for his assistance and defusing tensions after he was rejected during the June call.

the Ukrainian president told NBC his conversation with Biden today was very important.

“I am grateful for this support. It is especially important for our defence in Donbas.”

Ever since the Russia-Ukraine conflict on February 24, the United States has been one of the major providers of security assistance to Ukraine.

Biden-Zelenskyy’s phone call comes two days after Washington announced USD 275 million in additional military assistance for Ukraine.

This military assistance will bring the total to an unprecedented USD 18.5 billion that the United States has been giving to Ukraine since this presidency, said a statement released by the US State Department.

A Congressional Research Service report states that in 2022, the United States provided Ukraine with more advanced defence equipment, as well as more of the items previously provided.

The Pentagon reports that US security assistance to Ukraine includes High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, Stinger anti-aircraft systems, Javelin anti-armour systems, and Mi-17 helicopters.

After waging a war with Vladimir Putin’s Russia, Ukrainian officials sought to obtain other advanced weapons, such as fighter planes, ships, and more missile and anti-aircraft capabilities.
