Written by News Room 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.
