Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken spoke today with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba to discuss continued U.S. security assistance to Ukraine as it defends its sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of Russia’s brutal and unprovoked war. The Secretary and Foreign Minister Kuleba shared updates on efforts to resolve the global food security crisis caused by President Putin’s invasion, noting that the Kremlin continues to weaponize food and spread false claims about U.S. sanctions. The Secretary reemphasized that the United States and its Allies and partners will continue to coordinate closely to support Ukraine and to address the global consequences of the Kremlin’s war of choice.
