Biden Says Putin Isn't Sincere In Ending His Bloody Invasion Of Ukraine
US President Joe Biden does not intend to talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin since he is not inclined to enter into any kind of dialogue to end the invasion of Ukraine, a bloody misadventure that he planned and executed, Ukraine Daily reported.

The White House announcement came at a time when Ukraine received $1.5 billion in budget support from US as part of the $4.5 billion grant announced in late November, Ukraine's Finance Ministry reported.
Google also donated $2 million for the digital education of Ukrainians. The grant will be used to train Ukrainians in digital literacy, “bridging the digital divide” and expanding the Diia Digital Education platform, Digital Transformation Minister Mykhailo Fedorov said.
Der Spiegel also reported on Dec. 3 that seven more Gepard tanks will be shipped to Ukraine to protect its air space even as Kyiv had requested that Patriot air defense missiles be sent to shoot down Russian missiles.
Der Spiegel reported the seven tanks were repaired for deployment in eastern and southern Ukraine, where cities are being battered by Putin’s missiles.
Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles announced in Odesa that Hawk surface-to-air-missile batteries had arrived in Ukraine from Madrid as promised. These missiles have been upgraded to respond to the needs of the Ukrainian military. Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov met Robles in Odesa on Dec. 2.
