Thus, it has affirmed that Washington has been helping Ukrainians “since day one of war”, according to information disseminated through the diplomatic legation’s Twitter account.

The U.S. government has also indicated that it will provide additional military assistance with the delivery of HIMARS multiple rocket launcher systems and ammunition, as confirmed by Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.

In a brief press conference at the White House, he stressed that the administration of President Joe Biden intends to make the announcement later this week. The U.S. has already made more than fifteen such shipments to Ukraine since Biden took office.

In addition, it is planned that the Ukrainians will thus have more ammunition and shields against shelling. Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksi Reznikov has stated that the country needs at least a hundred such systems for an effective counterattack.

Kirby has in turn warned that Russia is preparing the annexation of occupied Ukrainian territories as part of its invasion. “The Kremlin has not given a timetable for the referendum, but Russian henchmen say it will be at the end of this year and would coincide with regional elections in Russia,” he said.

In this regard, he has clarified that the annexation “by force of territory captured in Ukraine would be a serious violation of the UN Charter” and has insisted that he “will not allow this to go unanswered or unpunished.”
