“We are seeing what's happening [in Ukraine],” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said when asked to comment on the U.S. position in view of the latest reports about the Russian side's preparations for maximum escalation, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“We are going to continue to help Ukraine in any way that we can. They are assessing what's going on the battlefield clearly. And we are talking to them on a regular basis to see what else we can do to help,” she added.
At the same time, Jean-Pierre stressed that the United States is "going to stand by the Ukrainian people for as long as it takes."
