Another plane with U.S. military assistance has arrived in Kyiv, delivering 84 tonnes of small arms ammunition for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

“The day hasn’t passed yet and we’re unloading the 6th bird from our friends from the United States! 84 tons of ammunition arrived in Kyiv! In total, for today we’ve received about 500 tons of defense equipment from the United States! And this isn’t the end,” Defense Minister of Ukraine Oleksii Reznikov posted on Twitter.

The United States prefers the path of diplomacy but will continue to provide Ukraine the defensive assistance needed to defend against Russia.

“We vastly prefer the path of dialogue and diplomacy, but we will continue to provide Ukraine the defensive assistance needed to defend against Russia's massive military force assembled on its borders. We #StandWithUkraine,” the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine posted on Twitter.

Since the end of October, Russia has been amassing troops near Ukraine's borders. Western media reported, citing sources, that the Russian invasion of Ukraine could take place in early 2022, involving about 175,000 Russian troops.

In this regard, the United States, Britain and other international partners provide Ukraine with defensive weapons. In particular, anti-tank weapons from Great Britain arrived in Ukraine on January 18.
