US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba held a briefing. Here are the main theses.

๐Ÿ“ A first-of-its-kind fund for defense enterprises will be created as part of the $2 billion aid.

๐Ÿ“ Money from the new package will also be used to purchase weapons in other countries.

๐Ÿ“ The US "pays special attention to Patriot and other air defense equipment" that Ukraine needs.

๐Ÿ“ Washington does not encourage strikes against Russia with American weapons, but "Ukraine must decide for itself what to do."

๐Ÿ“ Also, Ukraine itself will decide on negotiations with Russia. The US supports Ukrainian decisions, but sees that Putin is not in the mood for serious negotiations.

๐Ÿ“ The US and Ukraine may sign a bilateral security agreement with Ukraine in a few weeks.
