U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken paid a surprise visit to Kyiv on Tuesday to emphasise the United States’ support for Ukraine amidst increasing Russian aggression.

During his meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Blinken reiterated the United States’ dedication to Ukraine’s defence. This visit comes after Congress recently approved a $60 billion foreign assistance package for Ukraine, which includes provisions for replenishing crucial artillery and air defence systems.

Blinken reassured Ukraine that aid from the package is already on its way and emphasised its importance in strengthening Ukraine’s defences against Russian advances.

The secretary of state highlighted the significance of the aid package in bolstering Ukraine’s efforts on the battlefield, where Russian forces have made advances against Ukrainian defences in certain regions.
