The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine also recalled that US President Joe Biden told Russian President Vladimir Putin that in the event of further Russian invasion of Ukraine, the United States would provide Kiev with much more defense equipment in addition to the one already provided.
The message also cited Chargé d’Affaires Chargé d’Affaires Christina Quinn, who stressed that the United States, allies and partners are on the side of Ukraine and are working together to expedite the provision of security assistance to Ukraine.
Queen also quoted Biden about the consequences if Russia continues aggression against Ukraine: “If any Russian troops cross the Ukrainian border, then this will be an invasion, followed by an early, tough and united reaction. It will be a reaction of both the United States and our allies.”
She also noted that the Ukrainian military is disciplined, well-supplied and trained.
“I want to emphasize that Russian soldiers who go to Ukraine on the orders of the Kremlin will face fierce resistance, and Russia will suffer significant losses. If President Putin takes this reckless step, then we will provide more technical assistance to Ukraine than we have already provided,” – said Christina Quinn.
