On Wednesday, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announced a new $400 million military aid package to Ukraine, with the aim of supporting it in defending its territory against Russia.

“The new package includes additional weapons, ammunition, and air defense equipment that will help Kyiv counter the Kremlin’s relentless attacks on Ukraine’s critical energy infrastructure,” Blinken said, in a statement published on the US State Department website.

The US secretary added that his country “will continue to support Ukraine for as long as possible so that it can continue to defend itself and have a strong position at the negotiating table when the time comes.”

With this step, the total US military assistance to Ukraine brings to an unprecedented level of about $19.7 billion in weapons and other equipment since the start of the Russian war on February 24, according to the same statement.
