White House adviser Sullivan: “We will get this done” on Ukraine aid

White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan, during a surprise visit to Kyiv, assured that a long-delayed US military aid package would reach Ukraine, pledging continued American support. 

Much needed US aid for Ukraine has been stuck in Congress since late last year, piling more pressure on already outgunned Ukrainian troops fighting Russian troops.

“From our perspective we are confident: we will get this done. We will get this aid to Ukraine,” said White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan at the joint press conference after meeting Ukrainian presidential chief of staff Andriy Yermak. 

He did not provide a timeline but dismissed the need for a “plan B” or the possibility of providing the aid as a loan.

However, the American official offered no updates on the provision of long-range ATACMS missiles to Ukraine. 

“On ATACMS, I am going to disappoint you, I have nothing to announce here publicly today on that issue,” he said.

Russian troops continue to make incremental advances in eastern Ukraine, as Ukrainian forces grapple with artillery shortages, manpower issues, and uncertainties surrounding their defensive fortifications.

Yermak said he had discussed with Sullivan Ukraine’s current battlefield needs, the NATO summit in Washington in July and a peace summit in Switzerland that Kyiv wants to happen this spring.
