Biden to Russia:Reduce Ukraine Tension 04/22 06:07

   U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is warning Russia that "it's time to stop 
talking and start acting" to reduce tension in Ukraine.

   KIEV, Ukraine (AP) -- U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is warning Russia that 
"it's time to stop talking and start acting" to reduce tension in Ukraine.

   Biden spoke Tuesday after meeting with Ukrainian officials in their capital, 
Kiev.

   The vice president also announced the United States will provide an 
additional $50 million to help Ukraine's beleaguered government with political 
and economic reforms.

   The money includes $11 million to help conduct the May 25 presidential 
election, including voter education, administration and oversight. It also will 
help fund expert teams from U.S. government agencies to help Ukraine to reduce 
its reliance on energy supplies from Russia. Other technical advisers will help 
fight corruption.

   The White House has also announced $8 million in nonlethal military 
assistance for the Ukrainian armed forces, including bomb-disposal equipment, 
communications gear and vehicles.
