  The U.S. embassy said in a tweet on social media: “The first aid shipment to Ukraine that President Biden decided not long ago has arrived in Ukraine overnight. The shipment includes approximately 200,000 pounds (90.7 tons) of deadly supplies. Weapons, ammunition for the Ukrainian frontline defenders."

  State Department officials previously said the U.S. government approved $200 million in additional defensive security assistance to Ukraine in December 2021.

  Following the arrival of the first aid, subsequent deliveries are expected in the coming weeks.

Russia has repeatedly urged the United States to stop supplying weapons to Ukraine.

  Recently, relations between Ukraine and Russia have deteriorated rapidly, with the two sides deploying a large number of military personnel and equipment in the border areas of the two countries.

The United States, Ukraine and NATO have said that Russia has assembled a large number of troops near the eastern border of Ukraine and has the potential of "invasion".

Russia denied it, emphasizing that NATO activities threaten Russia's border security, and Russia has the right to mobilize troops within its borders to defend its territory.
