Secretary of State Antony Blinken conducted an unannounced visit to Kyiv on Thursday, at the same time the Joe Biden administration announced over $2 billion in additional military aid for Ukraine and neighbouring countries to resist Russia.
Antony Blinken went on his second journey to Kyiv since the Russian incursion in February without raising suspicion.
According to the Associated Press, Antony Blinken, the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, announced that the Biden administration would provide $2 billion in long-term foreign military financing to Ukraine and 18 of its neighbours, including NATO members and regional security partners, who are “most potentially at risk for future Russian aggression.”
The visit occurs as fighting intensifies between Russia and Ukraine, as the latter launches a counteroffensive to retake territory in the south and east that Russia currently controls.
Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky made a “good news” announcement from the front lines in eastern Ukraine, saying that his troops had retaken certain towns and villages from Russia.
