Russia vs. Ukraine: Heat up! They reveal that Joe Biden shouted at Zelenski in a phone conversation


Tensions over the war in Ukraine are raising spirits, even among allies.

As reported by the American network NBC News, the presidents of the United States Joe Biden and Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky they had a heated debate about the aid that the West gives to Ukraine.

The conversation took place last June 15NBC News said, citing four people briefed on the call as sources.

The two leaders often talk on the phone whenever the US sends aid. And in that conversation, Biden told him that he would send a new military aid package worth a billion dollars. However, Zelenski reacted quite differently than the American expected. Instead of thanks, there was a reproach.



Zelensky began to list the additional assistance that Ukraine needed, which it was not receiving from the US government.

Biden lost patience. According to NBC, The American president raised his voice and asked the Ukrainian to be a little more grateful.

He noted that the American people have been quite generous and that his administration and the US military are working hard to help Ukraine.

A few hours after the call, Zelensky admitted: “I am grateful for the support of the United States. This is especially important for our defense in Donbas“. Biden did the same and affirmed that his country “will not waver when it comes to engaging with the Ukrainian people as they fight for their freedom.”

Although relations between the two have improved over time, Zelensky still blames the United States for sending certain weapons. Among them are long-range missile systems (ATACMS), which the Biden administration refuses to hand over for fear of being used against Russian territory.
