The United States of America is concerned about Russia's attempts and efforts to annex and occupy Ukrainian territory. Consequently, they will exert maximum efforts to provide Ukraine with resources and means for the recovery of its territories.

Brigadier General Pete Ryder, the Pentagon's spokesperson, announced this during a press briefing.

"When it comes, broadly speaking, to support for Ukraine, I would say that as we have said in the past, we will continue to support Ukraine for as long as it takes.  In terms of the kinds of capabilities that they will need going forward, that will be a continuing discussion that we have with the Ukrainians and -- and with our allies and partners," said Brigadier General Pete Ryder

He added: "As far as funding goes out, we currently have, as you know, restored and are able to use $6.2 billion in pre- -- PDA that was previously committed, and so that money is available to us beyond the fiscal year, going into the next fiscal year, as are approximately $600 million in remaining USAI funds, which again, is a -- a two-year funding stream. So the bottom line in all of that is we will continue to work very, very closely with the interagency and with Ukraine to ensure they get what they need."
