V-P Kamala Harris: US will work to ensure Russia pays damages to Ukraine

BERLIN – US Vice-President Kamala Harris said that US President Joe Biden’s administration stood ready to support Ukraine in its war with Russia for “as long as it takes” and would push for Russia to pay damages to Ukraine following the end of the war.

“We will continue in our efforts to secure a just and lasting peace. We will work to make sure Russia pays damages to Ukraine,” she said at a joint news conference with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky at the annual Munich Security Conference on Feb 17.

Her comments come as the US political world battles over how and whether to stand up to Russia, particularly after Washington has approved more than US$110 billion (S$150 billion) in defence assistance for Ukraine, and Biden’s request for another US$60 billion for Kyiv is stalled in the US Congress.

“President Biden and I will continue to work to secure the resources and weapons you need to succeed,” she said.

“We will be with you for as long as it takes,” she added. REUTERS
