U.S. Secretary of State Blinken makes unannounced trip to Ukraine
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken made an unannounced trip to Ukraine today to meet with the country's leadership and to announce major new military aid worth more than $2 billion for Ukraine and 18 other countries threatened by Russia, TURAN's Washington correspondent reports.
This new funding is in addition to the latest $675 million tranche of security assistance to Ukraine, which was announced by the Pentagon today.
"These announcements will bring the total U.S. military assistance for Ukraine to approximately $15.2 billion since the beginning of this Administration," the senior State Department official told reporters.
Blinken is meeting various officials during the visit, which was not pre-announced for security reasons.
He visited a children's hospital on Thursday morning, meeting children and families who have been affected by the war.
