The US accused Putin of lying
Price: Now Putin, I think, is proving the lie
According to the US, President Vladimir Putin’s imposition of martial law in the annexed Ukrainian territories shows that his claim about the people’s desire to join Russia is a “lie”.
“President Putin annexed these regions under the pretense that there are people in these regions who are so desperate for asylum from the Ukrainian state that they want to join Mother Russia,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters.
“Now Putin, in my opinion, is proving the lie by declaring martial law,” Price said.
The US Congress may approve a new aid package for Ukraine in the amount of about 50 billion dollars by the end of the year, NBC reported on Thursday, citing its sources.
