It was reported amid Secretary Blinken’s visit to Kiev
While U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is in Ukraine, the Joe Biden administration said on Wednesday that it would provide additional $200 million in defensive military aid to the country amid growing concerns about a possible Russian invasion.
A senior State Department official said the aid was approved in late December as part of American efforts to help Ukraine defend itself.
However, until Wednesday, the administration refused to comment on this.
The administration official was not authorized to discuss the topic publicly before Blinken’s meetings in Kiev and spoke on the condition of anonymity.
