We are confident in the actions of the Ukrainian government to protect American weapons – State Department – Ukraine News, Politics

The United States is working closely with the government of Ukraine to account for and protect against leaks or illicit distribution of weapons provided by Washington to Kyiv. The State Department has “confidence in the Ukrainian government and what it is doing.” This was during a telephone briefing, said Deputy Secretary of State Bonnie Jenkins, the press service of the State Department.

She noted that the United States is very serious about protecting US-origin defense technologies and preventing their leakage or illegal distribution.

In every case of the transfer of American equipment to any country, the US leadership takes into account the possibility of its “illegal diversion” or loss on the battlefield, the assistant secretary noted.

“Therefore, we are actively engaging with Ukraine to ensure aid is accountable, even in the complex conflict that we are seeing…” Jenkins said.

“We are confident in the commitment of the Ukrainian government to properly protect and account for US-made defense equipment. Therefore, without going into operational details, I can say that the United States is actively engaged with the government of Ukraine to ensure accountability for defense articles and security assistance provided by United States,” the State Department spokeswoman added.

Responding to another question about guns and gun control, Jenkins said “we have a lot of confidence in the Ukrainian government and what it’s doing.”

“We are working very closely with them (Ukrainians – ed.) in every possible way to protect and account for equipment that is sent to Ukraine, but we also recognize the difficult situation that exists,” Jenkins emphasized once again.

  • Earlier, Republican Congresswoman Victoria Spartz tied her accusations against the head of the President’s Office Andrey Yermak with the fact that the US Congress allegedly doubts that American aid reaches the Armed Forces of Ukraine. She even stated that American weapons could allegedly end up in Russia or Syria.
