During his visit to Ukraine, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken echoed the Biden administration's strong support of the beleaguered country amid Russia's recent advances in Kharkiv, APA reports citing CNN.

"I have come to Ukraine with a message. You are not alone," Blinken said at a briefing at the Kyiv Polytechnic Institute.

The speech comes after Congress and the White House passed a funding package that included $60-plus billion in aid to Ukraine, and the EU approved a financial package of up to $54 billion.

Blinken focused much of his speech about building security and economic infrastructure in Ukraine to pave a path to NATO acceptance.

"When we hold the Washington Summit in July, we'll take tangible steps to increase NATO's role in building a resilient, capable Ukrainian force, supporting its ongoing reforms that are integrating Ukraine into the alliance," Blinken said.
