Details: She emphasised that it is important not only for the United States but also for partners around the world to make every effort to help Ukraine.
And this, according to Jean-Pierre, remains unchanged.
Asked whether Poland had contacted the United States before President Duda announced preparations to deliver MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine, she said that Washington had been informed of the decision.
"We continue to closely coordinate with our allies and partners, including Poland, as we provide assistance to Ukraine," Jean-Pierre said.
The United States plans to announce new military assistance to Ukraine as part of efforts to counter Russian aggression.
The latest military aid package of US$400 million was announced on 3 March.
It included ammunition for HIMARS multiple-launch rocket systems and howitzers, as well as ammunition for Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, armoured bridge crossings, ammunition and demolition equipment, and other maintenance, training, and support items.
Since Russia's full-scale invasion, the United States has provided about US$30 billion in aid to Ukraine.
