Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will visit the UK this week to address parliament and petition Prime Minister Rishi Sunak for more aid.
The UK has already committed more training for UK troops as well as longer-range weapons. The UK is also expected to announce a new round of Russian sanctions, following the European Union’s new sanction package.
Meanwhile, the UK economy continues to suffer. The National Institute for Economic and Social Research estimates that households in Britain will suffer a £4,000 hit to their household budget this year, on average.
The speech was light on Ukraine this year, unlike last year, but heavy on China. The President said that the U.S. will act to protect its sovereignty if China presents a threat. But, barring that, the U.S. is willing to work with China to advance American interests, he said.
Republicans offered up Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders to present a rebuttal to the address. She accused the President of being the first person to surrender his presidency to a woke mob. She said that he inherited an economic recovery, secure border and an abundance of home-grown, affordable energy but has squandered all of that.
President Biden tried hard to do a victory lap over Covid and the economy but he was heckled by some Republicans over his handling of the opioid crisis. This speech was supposed to bolster confidence in the President in advance of his re-election campaign. Do you think it did?

The death toll from the earthquake in Syria and Turkey has surpassed 9,500. And yet the West will not send aid to Syria due to its “sanctions of mass destruction.” We discussed these at length on Tuesday’s episode of Redacted.
On Monday, the U.S. State Department’s spokesperson Ned Price said that it would be “ironic, if not counterproductive, for us to reach out to a new government that has brutalized its people over the course of a dozen years now.”
So the U.S. wants to stand up for those people because it disapproves of the country’s leadership by not standing up for those people when they need physical aid? Makes total sense. (Sarcasm, in case you missed it.)
President Biden said that the U.S. would deploy support to Turkey, however, as if need has borders. Ukraine’s President Zelensky said that he will also send a group of rescuers and equipment, but only to Turkey.
Meanwhile, numerous other countries are sending aid to both nations, including Russia, China, India, Japan, the UAE and Iraq.

Uganda wants to break up with the United Nations. The country said that they will not renew the mandate of the U.N. human rights office.
This does not mean that Uganda can leave the United Nations. Technically, the U.N. does not allow nations to leave. Nations can, however, stop cooperating with specific agencies such as the World Health Organization or UNESCO.
Uganda says that it does not want to work with the U.N.’s human rights office and instead will work directly with Geneva headquarters as needed. The U.N. will likely not let this go easily. It accused Uganda of human rights abuses over the 2021 election.
