The US suspends military aid to Ukraine

The White House has temporarily suspended the provision of a package of military assistance to Ukraine worth up to $ 100 million, originally developed in response to the movement of Russian troops along the border with Ukraine, writes the publication Politico, citing sources.

The National Security Council has previously instructed officials to allocate the aid package. Employees of the State Department and the Pentagon worked on the package, the publication notes.

The decision to suspend the allocation of aid was made by the National Security Council in connection with Russia’s announcement of the withdrawal of troops from the border and on the eve of the summit of the US and Russian presidents in Geneva, the sources of the publication emphasized.

One source said the aid could still be sent to Ukraine quickly if the decision is changed.
