As the U.S. Secretary of State noted, taking into account this amount, the total amount of security assistance allocated by the current Washington administration to Kyiv amounted to more than $ 1.2 billion.

The U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, in accordance with a memorandum by President Joe Biden, ordered to allocate military assistance to Ukraine in the amount of up to $ 200 million.

“This package will include further defensive assistance to help Ukraine cope with threats from armored vehicles, air and others,” Blinken said in a written statement released Saturday by the Department of State. As Blinken noted, taking into account this amount, the total amount of security assistance allocated by the current Washington administration to Kyiv amounted to more than $ 1.2 billion.

“America and its allies support their [Ukrainians’] efforts to protect their country and fellow citizens, and also call on Russia to recognize that force will never defeat the spirit of Ukraine. We are committed to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and will continue to provide Ukraine with the necessary support. We will also continue to provide humanitarian aid to those in need and support the people of Ukraine in their struggle for their country through economic and security assistance,” Blinken said.
