Rumours about U.S. Military Aid Halt Considered a Russian Fake in Ukraine

The information about Washington’s alleged halt to a military aid package to Kyiv worth up to $100 million, as Politico reported the day before, is not true. This was stated by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

According to her, just last week — in the run-up to the U.S.-Russia Summit — the United States provided a $150 million package of security assistance, including lethal assistance, to Ukraine.

Psaki clarified that today the U.S. authorities had now provided the entire amount appropriated by Congress through the Ukraine security assistance initiative. Moreover, Washington prepared contingency funds “in the event of a further Russian incursion into Ukraine.”

At the same time, Minister of Defence of Ukraine Andriy Taran considers the emergence of a fake about the halt to U.S. aid to Ukraine an element of Russia’s information warfare against Ukraine and urges the domestic media not to buy into provocations.

“It is not surprising when the so-called ‘media’ of the aggressor state carry out the information operations. They are an undisguised weapon of the Russian military machine. It is surprising and unfortunate when some domestic media, including those that consider themselves to be high-quality resources, buy into provocations, do not check the content and sources of such fake news and become a blind tool of information warfare in the hands of the enemy,” Taran said.

He noted that the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine had been implementing systematically and consistently the second stage of defence reform since 2020, while deterring Russia’s armed aggression. An important element of its successful implementation should be the aggregation of national and foreign resources to attract the necessary investment in the creation of new capacities.
