President Joe Biden stressed the importance of U.S. and allied weapons for Ukraine’s defense Tuesday with a visit to a Lockheed Martin Corp. plant in Alabama making Javelin anti-tank missiles, which American and NATO officials say have mauled Russia’s invading armored columns.
Biden urged Congress to authorize an additional $33 billion in aid for Ukraine – with lawmakers warning that stockpiles of the U.S. Army and Marine Corps’ premier anti-tank weapon are becoming depleted due to the war.
