U.S. to continue supporting Ukraine to put it in “strongest possible place” - White House

Russia, which has unleashed an aggressive and unprovoked war against Ukraine, is showing no will to end it so the United States will continue to support Ukraine to give the nation a stronger hand over the invaders.

That’s according to White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre, who spoke at a briefing on Monday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

“[T]his is Putin’s war. This is Putin’s aggression — unprovoked aggression onto another country’s sovereignty. This is Putin’s war to end and not Ukraine. Ukraine needs to defend its country, and they have done that in — in an incredibly impressive way,” the spokesperson said.

She noted that all wars eventually end at the negotiating table.

“We hoped that it would end with negotiations. But right now, we don’t see that coming from the Kremlin,” the spokesperson said.

She noted that the U.S. wants to make sure “we put Ukraine in the strongest possible place so that if that time comes, they can do that.”

As Ukrinform reported earlier, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin on Monday said his country, together with other partners, was ready to fully contribute to covering Ukraine’s needs for defensive weapons.
