The Pentagon has no indications that any western equipment or shipments have been hit or deterred by Russian attacks in Ukraine, U.S. Department of Defense spokesperson John Kirby said during a press briefing on April 19.

Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, on April 18 said that a Ukrainian logistics center near the western Ukrainian city of Lviv, which he claimed  held a large batch of foreign weapons, had been destroyed in a Russian missile strike.

Kirby pushed back against this allegations, stating the U.S. had no intelligence indicating this to be the case.
