Today, President Joe Biden signed into law the Ukraine Lend-Lease Act, reviving a World War II-era program that will allow Ukraine to more efficiently request weapons to repel Russia’s invasion. The bill, passed with overwhelming bipartisan support, is similar to legislation passed in 1941 that helped U.S. allies defeat the Nazis. VOA Pentagon correspondent Carla Babb takes us to a base in Fairbanks, Alaska, which was vital to the original 1941 Lend-Lease agreement. Camera: Mike Burke
