Tuesday, 04. October 2022 19:05

United States President Joe Biden confirmed his country will provide Ukraine with an additional package of security assistance, which will be worth $625 million and include high mobility artillery rocket systems (HIMARS), the White House said in a statement issued on Tuesday following the head of state's conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky.

According to the White House, Biden "affirmed the continued readiness of the United States to impose severe costs on any individual, entity, or country that provides support to Russia’s purported annexation" and stressed that the US "will never recognize" Moscow's efforts.

Earlier, Biden underscored the US will not recognize the results of the referendums in which the regions internationally recognized as Ukraine's – Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia – voted in favor of joining Russia.
