Joseph Biden signed the Lend-Lease Law for Ukraine today, May 9th. This was another slap in the face of Vladimir Putin.

Why did Putin delay signing Lend-Lease

This was stated by Russian publicist Andrei Piontkovsky to Channel 24. Recall that Lend-Lease in the United States was supported on April 28.

However, US President Joe Biden decided to sign the law on May 9. According to Piontkovsky, he deliberately delayed it until this date.

This is an additional symbolic slap in the face to Vladimir Putin,” the Russian publicist emphasized.

According to him, a number of “blows” have already been dealt to Putin. We are talking about the support of Ukraine by the entire civilized world.

Note that Russia traditionally celebrated May 9 and even held a parade with the remains of surviving equipment. At the parade, the head of the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin, made a speech and issued new nonsense, in particular, regarding NATO and “fraternal peoples”.
