Quote: "I had a telephone conversation with the US Secretary of Defence. We discussed news from the front, the Ramstein 6 [meeting of defence ministers of NATO countries that assist Ukraine with weapons, ammunition and intelligence data in the ongoing war – ed.] and ways to strengthen our capabilities. Good news will be announced soon.
Lloyd Austin III confirmed that the United States does not recognise the "referendums" on the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.
The Ukrainian army will continue to use weapons to liberate our land."
The latest US military aid package includes a wide range of important combat equipment, but some of it, including new HIMARS systems, is aimed at supporting Ukraine's defence needs in the long term.
