US to provide Ukraine with $457.5M in civilian security aid

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced on Monday that Washington will provide Ukraine with an additional $457.5 million in civilian security assistance "to enhance the efforts of Ukrainian law enforcement and criminal justice agencies" and defend Ukraine from Russia's "brutal war of aggression."

"In addition to expanding our direct assistance to Ukrainian law enforcement, a portion of this new assistance will also continue U.S. support for the Ukrainian government’s efforts to document, investigate, and prosecute atrocities perpetrated by Russia's forces," the US top diplomat added.

Washington stressed that it has secured over $645 million in assistance for Ukrainian "law enforcement and criminal justice partners" since late 2021.
