US announces new "powerful package" of aid to Ukraine

Jun 20, 2023

U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said he will present a new aid package to Kyiv on Wednesday at a conference on Ukraine's recovery in London.

Blinken said this at a joint press conference with British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly on Tuesday, Reuters quoted him as saying.

"President Biden said... that we will be with Ukraine for as long as it takes, and both of our countries are deeply committed to that," Blinken said.

"We will continue to fulfill that commitment, including through a powerful new package of American assistance that I will be able to announce tomorrow," the US diplomat added.


On Wednesday and Thursday, a conference on Ukraine's recovery will take place in London, where more than 1,000 foreign officials from more than 60 countries, as well as business leaders and global investors, will discuss ways to help Ukraine rebuild.

The two foreign ministers emphasized that the conference was focused on encouraging the private sector to use its resources to accelerate Ukraine's recovery, but that Kyiv must do its part by continuing to implement reforms.

"This week is very much about creating the conditions necessary for public sector money, of course, but mostly private sector money, to fund their (Ukraine's - Ed.) reconstruction," said British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly.
