Ukraine's Defense Minister, Alexei Reznikov, announced the arrival this Thursday of two more planes from the United States, loaded with Javelin missiles, grenades and other ammunition for the Ukrainian Armed Forces, despite Russia's warnings that it will not invade that country and that the militarization of Kiev only endangers regional security.

“Two other birds are in Kiev! Javelin, grenades and other defensive ammunition for the armed forces of Ukraine. The weight of the military aid from our US partners that was delivered today is approximately 130 tons,” he posted on his Twitter account.

According to the official, Kiev has received a total of 15 aircraft with military aid weighing approximately 1,200 tons.

The US embassy in Kiev specified that flight 14 arrived in Boryspil on Thursday night and that the 1,200 tons, approved by President Joe Biden in January, arrived in the country to "defend against ongoing aggression."

For its part, the US State Department posted on its social media that this week's delivery of security assistance demonstrates "the continued commitment of the United States and our allies and partners to help bolster Ukraine's defenses." ” and support for its territorial sovereignty.

According to the office's website, since 2014 the US government has committed $5.4 billion in total assistance to Ukraine, including security and non-security assistance.

Likewise, the northern nation gave three sovereign loan guarantees for a total of 3,000 million dollars. In life-saving assistance, since 2014, the United States has given Kiev more than $351 million to support life-saving assistance to people displaced or affected by alleged Russian aggression in eastern Ukraine.

Since this year, the countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) have supplied weapons to Ukraine and trained its military, something that contradicts the Minsk agreements and complicates the solution of the Donbas conflict.

These supplies include the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Poland, Turkey and Lithuania, just to mention a few.

Ukraine has been carrying out a military operation against the militias in the east of its geography for six years, where the popular republics of Donetsk and Lugansk were proclaimed in response to the violent change of government that took place in February 2014.

The agreements signed in Minsk in September 2014 and February 2015 laid the foundations for a political solution to the conflict, but this did not translate into a sustainable peace.
