The United States intends to provide an additional $100 million in emergency preparedness assistance to bolster the capacity of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry to provide critical border security, maintain law enforcement functions civil society and to protect critical government infrastructure from premeditated, unprovoked and unwarranted attack.

The increased funding will help maintain a steady flow of personal protective equipment, field equipment, tactical equipment, medical supplies, armored vehicles and communications equipment for the Ukrainian Border Guard Service and the Ukrainian National Police. With vital assistance from the U.S. government, Ukrainian law enforcement is playing a key role in rescuing victims of the Russian government’s brutal assault, directing and protecting convoys of people displaced by the attacks, and ensuring the security of civilian areas torn apart by ruthless and devastating bombardments.

The United States continues to stand with the community of nations that stand with the people and government of Ukraine as they defend their democracy and their country. We continue to urge Putin to end the violence, rein in his forces, including those that have committed war crimes, and choose the path of peace and diplomacy. We are committed to pursuing accountability for war crimes and other atrocities using all available tools, including criminal prosecution.
