US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said on Thursday that the US is exploring a fresh military aid package for Kiev with partners, including training for the Ukrainian military.
“As you’ve seen us do over time, we have continued to look for ways along with our international partners to provide additional security assistance to Ukraine. Whether this assistance is in the form of actual equipment or other logistical support or training, we continue to evaluate what will be needed and make provisions to provide that security assistance, and so, that will be ongoing,” Austin told a joint press conference with Philippine Defense Secretary Jose Faustino in Hawaii.
Austin went on to say that the US will not speculate on how long the situation in Ukraine will last.
“In terms of how long the conflict will last, don’t want to speculate either. What I will tell you is that we will continue to support Ukraine, as you’ve heard our president say, for as long as it takes,” Austin said.
US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin stated on Thursday that the US will not comment on who is to blame for the Nord Stream pipeline catastrophes until an inquiry is completed.
“In terms of the attack or the damage to the pipeline, at this point, I think there is a lot of speculation but quite frankly until a complete investigation is done, no one will be able to really determine what happened for certain,” Austin told a joint press conference with Philippine Defense Secretary Jose Faustino in Hawaii.
