“We are discussing with our allies new measures to support Ukraine in its efforts to protect the territory, and we will continue to do so,” RIA Novosti quotes him as saying.

Austin noted that new assistance measures could include both the supply of additional weapons and assistance in the field of logistics, as well as the training of the Ukrainian military.

Earlier, the US Senate approved the US government's funding project, which provides for the allocation of another $12.4 billion in assistance to Ukraine.
