The White House reacted to media reports about the alleged suspension of military aid to Ukraine.

Earlier, the publication Politico, citing sources, reported that against the background of Russian military exercises, the United States was preparing to give Ukraine $ 100 million in additional assistance, but refused to do so on the eve of the US – Russia summit.

“The idea that we have suspended security assistance to Ukraine is nonsense. Just last week, before the US – Russia summit, we provided a $ 150 million package of security assistance, including weapons,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a written statement.

According to her, at the moment, Ukraine has been fully allocated the assistance planned by Congress.

“We have also prepared funds in the event of a further Russian invasion of Ukraine,” Psaki said, without specifying the amounts in question. The Russian side has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict and is interested in Kyiv overcoming the political and economic crisis.

“President Biden told President Putin directly that we will firmly support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine,” Psaki said.
