Blinken: US committed to Ukraine's sovereignty

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken reaffirmed on Thursday his country and President Joe Biden's strong commitment to Ukraine's "sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence" as it "continue[s] to strengthen your own democracy, building institutions, advancing reforms, combating corruption."

Speaking on the occasion of Blinken's visit to Kiev, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba (pictured center right) said the US is his country's "ally number one in security and defense, and everything that has been offered to Ukraine since 2014 is deeply appreciated [...], and I want all to be fully aware of that appreciation."

Before their encounter, Blinken stated the meeting will serve to "reaffirm unwavering US support for Ukraine's sovereignty" amid what Washington described as Russia's "military buildup" near the country's border.
