The United States has authorized $10 million to fund repairs on Ukraine's energy infrastructure, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a press release on Feb. 20.
“I am authorizing an additional $10 million to support our ongoing efforts to provide emergency assistance to keep Ukraine’s energy infrastructure up and running in the face of Russia’s relentless missile and drone attacks,” the message reads.
He noted that the United States will continue to rally the world in support of Ukraine.
According Blinken, only Russia could end the war today. But until it does, Washington will be united with Ukraine, for as long as it takes.
U.S. President Joe Biden arrived with a surprise visit to Kyiv on Feb. 20 – a symbolic show of support on the eve of the anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Following a meeting with President Zelenskyy, Biden announced a $500 million in additional security assistance to Ukraine. In particular, the package will include more ammunition for HIMARS, artillery shells, and Javelin anti-tank missiles.
