This strategic move comes on the heels of the country's recent acquisition of weaponry valued at over USD 60 billion as part of American military aid.

Sullivan underscored that despite the infusion of weapons into the Ukrainian army through the military assistance package sanctioned by the U.S. Congress in April, Russia may still achieve successes on the frontline in the foreseeable future.

Despite this, Sullivan expressed confidence that by the year's end, Ukrainian forces would be adequately equipped to maintain their current defensive positions and effectively fend off Russian aggression. However, he acknowledged the need to address the backlog in providing military and financial aid to Ukraine, a process that will take time.
