White House sees no evidence that U.S. military aid improperly used in Ukraine

The White House has not seen any evidence that Ukraine is improperly managing the military aid provided by the United States.

U.S. National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby stated this at a press conference, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We haven’t seen any evidence that — that there’s been any egregious misconduct when it comes to managing the security assistance that’s gone into Ukraine,” Kirby said.

He stressed that the Ukrainian officials also “share our concerns about making sure there’s proper accountability and transparency of things getting in and moving around the battlefield.”

“And we all want to have as much oversight and accountability as possible.  Of course, we do.  It’s taxpayer-funded equipment and systems that are going to Ukraine, but it is a war.  And real people are fighting and real people are dying.  And in battle, you can’t predict every single — the perfect, secure movement of every single item that every single soldier takes into the fight with him or her,” Kirby said.

As a reminder, last week, U.S. President Joe Biden's administration announced the allocation of a new military assistance package worth $350 million for Ukraine, which includes more ammunition for HIMARS and howitzers, HARM missiles and other equipment.
