US President Joe Biden on Thursday morning, April 21, will make a new statement on the situation around Russia and Ukraine, according to the work schedule of the head of state.

According to the schedule, at 09:45 Washington time (16:45 Moscow time), the President of the United States “will present an update on Russia and Ukraine.” No other details were given regarding the content of the upcoming speech.

Since the beginning of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, the United States, among other countries, has introduced several packages of anti-Russian sanctions that have affected, in particular, the banking sector, supply of energy resources and the military industry. On April 18, U.S. Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Wally Adeyemo said that the next package of sanctions would affect the Russian military-industrial complex and its supply chains.

The United States provides support to Ukraine, including providing military assistance. So, on April 10, National Security Adviser to the American President Jake Sullivan said that the country's authorities “are working around the clock to deliver weapons and military assistance.” He said that the United States is looking for weapons from its allies and partners that the Ukrainian military could use without additional training.

Russian authorities have repeatedly condemned Western states for “puffing weapons” Ukraine and warned that convoys with foreign weapons could become targets for the Russian military.
