Kiev-Ukraine’s Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov said on Sunday that he had been commissioned by the United States for a second weapon as part of a total of $ 200 million in defense assistance.

Washington said it would continue to support Ukraine in the concerns of more than tens of thousands of Russian troops gathered at the border between Kiev and its western allies. Russia has denied plans for a military attack.

“Kiev’s second bird! Over 80 tons of weapons to strengthen Ukraine’s defense capabilities from American friends! And that’s not the end,” Reznikov wrote on Twitter.

About 90 tonnes of “deadly security aid”, including ammunition from a US-approved package in December, arrived in the Ukrainian capital on Saturday.
