US suspends $100m military aid plan for Ukraine

According to the newspaper’s sources, the prepared aid package included the supply of lethal weapons to Ukraine. In particular, it considered providing the country with short-range air defence systems, firearms and anti-tank weapons.

The US National Security Council suspended the plan after tensions on the Ukraine-Russia border subsided and ahead of US leader Joe Biden’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva on 16 June.

As one of Politico’s interlocutors noted, the possibility of providing aid to Ukraine is still not definitively ruled out.
