The United States has sent more than 60 million in weapons and ammunition to Russia’s border with Ukraine, amid growing tensions between the United States and European countries. The United States has provided the weapons and ammunition to Ukraine as part of a security assistance program, the country’s foreign ministry said.
A US State Department official confirmed on Thursday that the weapons had arrived in Ukraine. However, four more counter-mortar radars are expected to be delivered early next year. This information was given in a report of the US media CNN.
The United States has sent weapons to Ukraine
US President Joe Biden approved the security package during a September 1 visit to the White House by Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky.
On Wednesday, Pentagon spokesman Jean Kirby said the security assistance program included lethal weapons such as anti-tank missiles as well as other weapons.
He made the threat during a virtual meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday. The same tune in the voices of European countries.
US President Joe Biden has warned Russian President Vladimir Putin that Russia will pay a “terrible price” if it invades Ukraine. Biden made the remarks last Saturday, according to Reuters.
Biden told reporters he had made it clear to Putin that Russia would pay a “terrible price” if it invaded Ukraine. The country must face devastating economic consequences.
Biden spoke with Putin for about two hours last week. The talks came amid growing tensions between the United States and Russia over Ukraine.
“I have made it very clear to President Putin that if he were to move toward Ukraine, it would be catastrophic for his country’s economy,” Biden said.
Biden said he had made it clear to the Russian leader that Russia’s position in the world would change significantly in the event of an invasion of Ukraine. The possibility of sending US ground troops to Ukraine in the event of a possible Russian attack was never discussed.
Kiev has accused Russia of deploying large numbers of troops along the border to invade Ukraine. Russia, meanwhile, has deployed about 100,000 troops along Ukraine’s border, AFP reports. The United States has made similar allegations. Citing intelligence reports, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said Moscow may have planned a military strike by the end of January. Russia has said in a statement that it has no plans to launch an attack on Ukrainian territory.
Biden has vowed to prevent a possible Russian aggression in Ukraine. He says he will make it very difficult for Russia to implement such a plan. At the same time, the foreign ministers of the G-7 countries have warned that Russia will have to pay a price if it attacks Ukraine.
