U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that Russia, Iran and China are interested in disrupting further U.S. aid to Ukraine, which continues to be a matter of controversy in the U.S. Congress.
He said this during a joint press conference on Thursday with British Foreign Secretary David Cameron, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"We are facing a very clear choice: do we guarantee that Putin's aggression against Ukraine will continue to be his failure, or will Putin prove what he believes in, that he can outlast us, divide us, and not only continue to threaten Ukraine but also transfer his aggression to other countries, including potentially NATO countries?" Blinken said.
That is why, according to him, the US administration is making more and more efforts to ensure that Ukraine can withstand and that the United States, allies, and partners continue to fulfill their role.
"That's why the additional funding now being considered by Congress is so necessary and so urgent," the U.S. diplomat emphasized.-
In this context, he emphasized that delaying aid is in the interests of the United States' adversaries.
"We know that additional funding is important. It's important because those who want this not to happen, those who want this not to move forward, are sitting in Moscow, they're sitting in Tehran, they're sitting in Beijing," the US Secretary of State said.-
