US announces $100 million in new security aid to Ukraine

The United States  said in a statement Saturday that it plans to donate “an additional $100 million in civilian security assistance” to Ukraine.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the money is intended “to enhance the capacity of the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs to provide essential border security, sustain civil law enforcement functions, and safeguard critical governmental infrastructure in the face of President Putin’s premeditated, unprovoked, and unjustified attack,” the statement read.

“The increased funding will continue a steady flow of personal protection equipment, field gear, tactical equipment, medical supplies, armored vehicles, and communication equipment for the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service and the National Police of Ukraine,” the statement added.
