US says it will continue offering security assistance to Ukraine

While the White House has stated that it will continue to arm Ukraine, it declined to comment on the explosion that destroyed Russia’s bridge over the road and rail to Crimea.

John Kirby, White House national security spokesperson, said: “We don’t really know anything else about the explosion at the bridge.” He spoke to ABC’s This Week. “I can tell you that Vladimir Putin started this war and that he could end it today by simply moving his troops out.

Kirby stated that both sides had to find a way of ending the war, but that Putin has shown no interest.

He said: “Quite the contrary.” Kirby said that “he has given every indication that he’s doubling down” by calling up hundreds of thousand of reservists and trying to annexe four areas of Ukraine.

Kirby stated that this is why “quite frankly, we are in contact almost daily with Ukrainians and they’re going to keep receiving security assistance”.

Echoing US President Joe Biden’s remarks last week about the possibility of nuclear Armageddon, Kirby stated that the United States did not have any indication that Putin had decided to use nuclear weapons. Kirby also said that the United States had no reason to alter its strategic position.

Kirby said: “The president was reflecting the very high stakes at play right now… when there is a modern nuclear force and the leader of that nuclear power willing to use irresponsible speech like Mr. Putin.”
