U.S. to expand aid to Ukraine – Markarova

The United States will expand its assistance to Ukraine in countering Russian aggression, Ukraine's Ambassador to the U.S. Oksana Markarova has said.

She said this in an interview with Suspilne News, Ukrinform reports.

"The United States has confirmed that they will actively help us resist Russian aggression. They have been actively helping us from the very beginning of the aggression, but the new stage of cooperation says that it will expand," she said.

Markarova noted that the confirmation of intentions to help is enshrined in the framework agreement on the strategic foundations of defense partnership, signed during the visit to the United States.

According to her, the document also provides for deepening cooperation in the Black Sea region and building up defense capabilities on land, at sea and in the air.

"And also in the cybersecurity sector. This framework agreement is the basis for each of these priorities, on which we can hold conversations with our colleagues," the ambassador emphasized.

As Ukrinform reported, on August 31, Ukrainian Defense Minister Andrii Taran and U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin signed a framework agreement on the strategic foundations of defense partnership between the two countries.
