U.S. may announce new military assistance package to Ukraine soon – White House

KYIV. Jan 31 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The United States may announce a new package of military assistance to Ukraine soon, Principal Deputy Press Secretary of the White House Olivia Dalton has said.

In a commentary on U.S. President Joseph Biden’s recent statement that the U.S. is not giving Ukraine any F-16 aircraft, Dalton said she did not "have anything to add to the President’s comments."

"But I think, as you all know, we’re sending a significant amount of weapons and security assistance to Ukraine right now to help with their ongoing battlefield needs in response to Russian aggression. You know, we’ve sent artillery, ammunition, armored vehicles, critical air defense capabilities. We’re in regular contact about their battlefield needs, and I expect we’re going to have more security assistance to announce soon," she said, according to the press service of the White House.
