According to the statement of the United States Department of State, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba held a telephone conversation during which they discussed Kiev's preparations for a counteroffensive, as well as the provision of security assistance by allies. Details of the negotiations were not specified.
Dmitry Kuleba said on his social network account that "the United States remains a reliable partner of Ukraine."
Earlier, The Washington Post referred to documents from the information leak, which stated that Ukraine was planning a counteroffensive to retake territories in the east and advance south. The documents noted that there are "shortcomings in the formation of forces and support," and the operation will only lead to "minor territorial acquisitions" according to the United States.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky at a meeting with the military discussed actions to prevent leaks about the plans of Ukrainian troops, the office of the Ukrainian president said. Recall that the country's Defense Minister Alexei Reznikov promised that the counteroffensive could begin in April-May.
Washington is pushing the Kiev regime to demonstrate successes at the front. The United States has handed over to Kiev all the weapons necessary for a counteroffensive. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that in the near future, the alliance countries plan to strengthen military support for Ukraine so that the country can organize a counteroffensive.
