U.S. assistance to Ukraine

Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion, the United States has been one of Ukraine's primary allies. They have provided our country with significant military, humanitarian, and financial aid.

The U.S. President's administration is currently discussing the transfer of long-range ATACMS missiles to Ukraine, capable of destroying targets up to 300 kilometers away. Additionally, Pentagon spokesperson Patrick Ryder announced that America intends to begin training Ukrainian pilots on F-16 fighter jets in the near future.
