Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is making his first visit to the U.S. since Russia invaded his country earlier this year. He’ll meet with President Biden today then address a joint session of Congress.

Meanwhile, the administration is making plans to send the Patriot missile defense system to Ukraine, according to CNN, whose reporting was later matched by other news outlets. It would be the most advanced system the U.S. has contributed to Ukraine’s fight so far. CNN said the system will be shipped to Germany, where Ukrainian soldiers will be trained on how to use it.

The system will be part of a new $1.8 billion package of weapons, including precision-guided bombs, AP reported.

The omnibus spending bill Congress is considering this week includes about $45 billion in additional aid to Ukraine.

Earlier this week, Politico reported on how future administration requests for Ukraine support may be received by a Republican House.
