White House to announce new military aid package for Ukraine soon

U.S. President Joe Biden's administration is planning soon to announce a new security assistance package for Ukraine.

According to Ukrinform, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Olivia Dalton said this at a briefing on Tuesday, January 31.

"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.

At the same time, Dalton declined to comment on Biden's statement that the United States is not giving Ukraine any fighter jets.

The previous security assistance package from the United States to Ukraine, worth more than $3 billion, was announced on January 6.
