USA to reduce aid to Ukraine, but will continue to supply it – Pentagon
The Pentagon said it would continue to supply Ukraine with military aid, but the size of the packages will decrease, Deputy Spokesperson of the U.S. Department of Defense Sabrina Singh said.
“Allies and partners are continuing to support Ukraine, we are continuing to support Ukraine in what they need in their fight. We're going to continue to roll out packages, they just are getting smaller. So we really implore Congress to pass the supplemental request that the President sent up so that we can continue to meet Ukraine's battlefield needs,”Singh stated.
She recalled that the United States has already spent more than 95% of the $62.3 billion allocated to Ukraine. There is about $1 billion left in reserves.
According to her, Ukraine hopes for the support of other countries.
“We just had a Contact Group last month. We are going to have another Ukraine Defense Contact Group in mid-November. Allies and partners are continuing to support Ukraine, we are continuing to support Ukraine in what they need in their fight,” the representative of Pentagon said.
