As per news report of NDTV, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin travelled to Poland on Saturday then overland into Ukraine on Sunday, where they met President Volodomyr Zelensky and other top Ukrainian officials, a senior State Department official said, declining to discuss in detail their travel or security arrangements. The visit was designed to show Western support for Ukraine and the cabinet secretaries also pledged new assistance worth $713 million for Zelensky's government and countries in the region, where Russia's invasion has raised fears of further aggression by Moscow. It also highlighted the shift in the conflict since Ukrainian forces, armed with a massive influx of weapons from the West, successfully repelled a Russian assault on Kyiv.
