Jun 2, 2023

The United States believes that, together with its allies, it has adequately provided Ukraine with military assistance for a counteroffensive.

According to Ukrinform, this was stated on Friday by John Kirby, the coordinator for strategic communications of the White House National Security Council.

"We are very pleased that we have so far met the needs of Ukraine for its counteroffensive. When they launch it is up to them, but we are confident that we have done everything we can, and when I say 'we' I mean not only the United States but our allies and partners," Kirby said.

He added that he was referring not only to air defense systems but also to armored vehicles, artillery, ammunition, and military training, which the Ukrainian Armed Forces will need even more as they move forward.

"Combat is a dynamic thing, and we need to be sure that we are also dynamically prepared to support it in the future. So, we've done a lot and we're ready to continue to do a lot in the days and months ahead," the White House official assured.
