The White House has put on hold a military aid package to Ukraine. The aid was originally given in response to massive Russian troop buildups along Ukraine’s border this spring.

Politico, citing “four people familiar with internal deliberations,” reported that the military aid, which contained small arms, anti-tank missiles, as well as short-range air defense systems, was put on hold by the National Security Council after the Russian military began to pull some of its troops back from the border. The aid was worth about $100 million. 

The Administration Rejects That It Is Withholding Aid From Ukraine

However, in a statement, White House press secretary Jen Psaki slammed the Politico report.

“The idea that we have held back security assistance to Ukraine is nonsense,” Psaki said.
