US ‘lethal aid’ arrives in Kyiv amid border build-up in Ukraine tension.

Written by on January 22, 2022

Some 90 tonnes of US lethal aid has arrived in Ukraine, amid tensions over Russia’s troop build-up on the border.

It was the first shipment of a recently approved package of US military aid for Ukraine, and included ammunition for front-line defenders.

The delivery followed US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s visit to Kyiv this week, where he warned of a tough response if Russia was to invade.

Moscow has denied any plans to attack or invade Ukraine.

Ukrainian Defence Minister Oleksiy Reznikov thanked the US for the aid.
