In case he wins the 2020 presidential election in the U.S., Joe Biden promises to pass Ukraine lethal weaponry. He said so in an official campaign statement timed to the 29th anniversary of Ukraine's independence. 

"As President, I will make it clear to the Kremlin that it must end its aggression toward and occupation of Ukraine. A Biden-Harris administration will ensure that Ukraine gets the economic and military support that it needs, including lethal weapons, while urging Ukraine to pursue the essential reforms that are vital to its success. Together, we will work toward the celebration of Ukraine’s independence day as a peaceful, whole, sovereign, democratic, and prosperous country", Biden stated.

In his statement, Biden also claims that the incumbent President Donald Trump "refuses to confront Vladimir Putin over Russia’s continuing assault against Ukraine, even insinuating on several occasions that Crimea is rightfully Russian territory".

As is known, the Republicans have been criticizing the administration of previous U.S. President Barak Obama, as he refused to give Ukraine defensive lethal weapons.
