The U.S. is prioritizing efforts to strengthen Ukraine’s air defense as Russia continues its assaults on Ukraine’s critical infrastructure

President of the United States Joe Biden reaffirmed the U.S. commitment to continue providing Ukraine with security, economic, and humanitarian assistance in his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on December 11, 2022.

“The U.S. is prioritizing efforts to strengthen Ukraine’s air defense through our security assistance, including the December 9 announcement of $275 million in additional ammunition and equipment that included systems to counter the Russian use of unmanned aerial vehicles,” the White House said in a statement.

President Zelenskyy thanked Biden for an additional $275 million in security assistance, which the Pentagon announced earlier, as well as for the wider and “unprecedented” U.S. support of Ukraine’s sovereignty in the face of Russian aggression, according to the statement published on the official website of the President of Ukraine.
