We are concerned by reports of British, Swedish & Croatian nationals being charged by illegitimate authorities in eastern Ukraine. Russia and its proxies have an obligation to respect international humanitarian law, including the rights & protections afforded to prisoners of war.
Today I directed a $1 billion drawdown of arms and equipment from U.S. military stockpiles for Ukraine’s defense, the largest use of U.S. Presidential Drawdown Authority to date. We stand with Ukraine and its brave defenders. #UnitedWithUkraine
Spoke with Turkish Foreign Minister @MevlutCavusoglu to discuss efforts to unlock Ukrainian grain exports and alleviate the global food crisis caused by Russia's unprovoked, unjustified full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
My visit to the Agribusiness Showcase in Cambodia demonstrates our commitment to addressing the unfolding and global food crisis, which has been driven by climate change, COVID-19, and the Kremlin's war of choice in Ukraine.
We welcome the first grain ship departing Ukraine and safely crossing the Black Sea. We commend the @UN and Turkey's efforts to get Ukraine’s grain to those suffering from food insecurity.
Today, the United States is imposing more economic sanctions and visa restrictions to ensure those enabling Russia’s unconscionable war against Ukraine are held to account. https://t.co/qohqhZbsvj
Productive discussion with Slovenian Foreign Minister @TFajon in New York. The U.S. strongly supports Slovenia as a very well-qualified @UN Security Council candidate. In our discussion, we emphasized the need to support Ukraine and hold Russia accountable for its brutal war. https://t.co/OwzXE4Xo9f
