NEAR THE POLISH-UKRAINIAN BORDER – The United States is giving new military assistance to Ukraine and renewing a diplomatic push in the war-ravaged nation as President Joe Biden’s secretary of state and Pentagon chief complete a secretive trip to Kyiv.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin informed Ukraine‘s president of a more than $300 million package of foreign military financing and a $165 million sale of ammunition.

They also said President Joe Biden would announce his pick for a U.S. ambassador to Ukraine and that American diplomats who left ahead of Russia’s invasion in February would start returning to the country this coming week.

Ukraine President Volodomyr Zelenskyy claimed he was going to meet with U.S. officials in Kyiv Sunday. But the Biden administration wouldn’t confirm or discuss any details regarding a possible visit.

This was the most high-ranking American visit to Washington since Russia invaded the capital in February.

Austin and Blinken announced $713 million in foreign military funding for Ukraine and 15 allied partner and partner countries. Kyiv is to receive an estimated $322 million.

Officials claim that the rest will be divided among NATO members and other countries that have supplied critical military supplies to Ukraine since the start of the war with Russia.
