The United States is in continuous contact with the Ukrainian side regarding the accounting & safeguarding of US weapons handed over to Ukraine.
The Under-Secretary of State for Arms Control & International Security Affairs Bonnie Denise Jenkins has made the relevant statement during an online briefing in Brussels, as per reports.
Jenkins said, “The US very seriously takes our responsibility to protect American origin defence technologies and prevent their diversion or illicit proliferation.”
In her words, the United States is in continuous contact with the Ukrainian side to ensure control over the aid delivered to Ukraine.
Jenkins asserted, “We are confident in the Ukrainian government’s commitment to safeguard and account for US (weapons) appropriately.”
At the same time, Jenkins added that the most effective way to lower the risk would be for Russia to stop the war & withdraw troops from Ukraine.
A reminder that Russia makes every step to stop Western partners from supplying arms to Ukraine, including through information campaigns & spreading lies about the new systems seized or illegally purchased from Ukraine.
Meanwhile, the Defence Ministry of Ukraine noted that any movement of arms, either into Ukraine or out of Ukraine, is closely checked and supervised both by Ukraine and international partners.
