Secretary of State Blinken Visits Kyiv, Pledges Billions in New U.S. Aid to Ukraine

HeadlineSep 08, 2022

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has arrived in Kyiv for meetings with U.S. Embassy staff. The State Department says Blinken will announce $2 billion in new military financing to Ukraine and 18 other countries the U.S. says are at risk of Russian aggression. That’s separate from a $675 million military package Blinken announced earlier today — part of an unprecedented $40 billion U.S. aid package for Ukraine passed by Congress in May.

Meanwhile, Belarus has launched war games along its border with Poland. Belarus is a major ally of Russia, and its territory has been used by Russian forces throughout the war in Ukraine.
