As Russia sets up its eastern Ukraine offensive, the U.S. and its western allies are sending more aid. On Thursday, President Biden announced an extra $800 million in military assistance and $500 million in economic aid.

"Putin is banking on us losing interest," he said, calling it a critical time to send help before Russia seizes new territory.

House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said lawmakers will be looking into more aid. "We want to do more," she said Thursday. "The president said he will be asking Congress for more. We'll learn about that in the next day or so to be taken up as soon as we can next week."

As the war rages on, the number of refugees has reached a stunning milestone – more than 10 percent of Ukraine's entire population

The brutal fighting has forced more than 5 million people to flee Ukraine. Nearly 3 million of them have headed to Poland as well as eastern European countries like Romania and Hungary.
