U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin visited Kyiv, expressing long-term American support for Ukraine amid concerns over the sustainability of Western aid. The U.S. Congress is divided over aid allocation, with a deficit of over $40 billion in Ukraine's budget. President Biden's request for more funding was omitted from a recent spending bill, raising doubts about future appropriations. The visit aims to boost Ukraine's domestic arms production as it nears two years of conflict with Russia.
