According to a White House spokesman, this military aid package was additional help if Russia continues to build up troops on the border with Ukraine.
Sullivan said it was additional help if Russia continues to build up troops on the border with Ukraine.
“Given that the threat has subsided, the United States has frozen this additional $ 100 million. The United States is ready to help Ukraine if Russia takes aggressive action,” media quoted the adviser to the American president.
Earlier the Politico, citing sources, reported that the White House temporarily froze a package of military aid to Ukraine for $ 100 million.
It is noted that the package included short-range air defense systems, small arms and other anti-tank weapons.
The interlocutors also noted that the package was frozen ahead of the meeting between President Joe Biden and Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
