During a meeting in Paris on Friday, Joe Biden apologized to Volodymyr Zelensky for the months-long delay in congressional approval of military aid to the country. The American president nonetheless maintained that his administration was still "completely" in when it came to assisting the war-torn nation in its fight against Russia.

"I apologize for those weeks of not knowing what's going to happen in terms of funding," Biden said, per the Associated Press, referring to the six-month period during which over $60 billion in aid was held up in Congress as Republicans and Democrats battled it out. "We're still in. Completely. Thoroughly."

Biden used the opportunity to tout the latest round of funding, which will amount to about $225 million and include munitions for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, mortars, and a number of other artillery rounds. Ukraine used the HMARS to strike on Russian territory with Biden's approval.
