White House may announce more aid to Ukraine ‘as soon as the end of this week’

The Biden administration says that additional Ukrainian aid could be announced “as soon as the end of this week”.

The relevant statement was made by National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby in an interview with CNN, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“I suspect that you will continue to hear coming from the United States additional packages of security assistance, additional weapons and capabilities for Ukraine – perhaps as soon as the end of this week,” Kirby noted.

Kirby didn’t answer when asked if the package would include tanks for the Ukrainians, saying he didn’t “want to get ahead of things we haven’t announced yet”. But, Kirby mentioned the US was focused “on trying to make sure that we are giving Ukraine what they need in the fight that they're in”.

“We’re gonna continue to modulate these packages so that they’re most appropriate for what Ukraine needs and if we can’t provide that, we’re working with other allies and partners to see if they can,” Kirby explained.

A reminder that, at the beginning of January 2023, the United States allocated a military aid package worth more than $3 billion to Ukraine.
