Putin keeps trying to bring Ukrainians to their knees - White House

Dec 6, 2022

The United States will continue to provide Ukraine with everything it needs to protect its territory from Russian missile strikes.

According to the Voice of America, this position was expressed at a briefing on Monday by John Kirby, coordinator for strategic communications at the U.S. National Security Council.

"These attacks, of which there have been several dozen, according to a preliminary count, is yet another reminder of how Putin continues to try to bring the Ukrainian people to their knees and a reminder of the absolute rudeness of strikes on clearly civilian targets. For the sole purpose of causing human suffering. He is certainly not aiming at military targets," he stressed.

The White House spokesman stressed that the U.S. will continue to provide Ukraine with the assistance it needs, including rebuilding damaged infrastructure.

"We are in constant contact with the Ukrainians about their needs, not just on the issue of security assistance, but, as Secretary Blinken said last week, about providing additional resources for their energy infrastructure and working with the Europeans to provide more equipment and technical assistance," he said.
