Washington: US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced Tuesday another $100 million in American military aid would be sent to Ukraine following reports of atrocities committed there by invading Russian forces.

“I have authorized, pursuant to a delegation from the President earlier today, the immediate drawdown of security assistance valued at up to $100 million to meet Ukraine’s urgent need for additional anti-armour systems,” Blinken said in a statement.
