US administration is considering sending advanced, long-range weapons systems to Ukraine, informed sources told the media.

Iran PressEurope: US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba spoke about US military support for Ukraine and efforts to resolve a food crisis sparked by Russia’s invasion, the State Department said.

The Biden administration is poised to send more weapons and humanitarian aid to Ukraine in the coming months after Congress passed a nearly $40 billion assistance package.

The diplomats discussed the food shortages triggered by blockades of Ukrainian ports, and noted that the “Kremlin continues to weaponize food and spread false claims about US sanctions,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a written statement.

“The Secretary reemphasized that the United States and its Allies and partners will continue to coordinate closely to support Ukraine and to address the global consequences of the Kremlin’s war of choice,” Price said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a military strike on Ukraine on February 24. This development came days after Moscow formally recognized the independence of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics in eastern Ukraine.  

Vladimir Putin has said his military operation aims to " demilitarize Ukraine" and "de-Naziizing" the country.

The war in Ukraine has entered its third month, and so far, 25 countries have sent various military weapons to Kyiv.

The Russians insist they have no intention of occupying Ukraine.
