A day after the six-month mark of the conflict against Russia, President Joe Biden underlined the United States’ support to Ukraine during a phone call on Aug. 25 with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Thursday, according to The Associated Press.

Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters at the White House briefing that Biden “reiterated the United States’ support for Ukraine as they defend themselves from Russian aggression” and “congratulated Ukraine as it marked a particularly significant Independence Day this week.”

Biden and Zelenskyy also spoke about U.S. security assistance, including a new nearly $3 billion tranche of aid that the U.S. administration announced on Wednesday, according to Jean-Pierre.

The two presidents reaffirmed their concerns for Russia to allow Ukraine complete management of Zaporizhzhia and for the International Atomic Energy Agency to be allowed entry to the plant.

The United States has been the largest supplier of military aid to Ukraine since the very beginning of the war. Ukraine has received both conventional weapons as well as more modern technology and ammunition.

Kyiv now has access to more than 7,000 different types of small arms and 50 million rounds of ammunition thanks to the Pentagon. Additionally, the US has decided to commit more than 1 million grenades, mortar rounds, and artillery rounds for the Ukrainian military.
