Long-term agreements on the security of Ukraine should survive any administration, State Department press secretary Matthew Miller said at a briefing on August 9.
Answering the question whether aid to Ukraine will change if Donald Trump becomes the next US president, he said that the aid should be ensured by the relevant intergovernmental agreements.
“We have made clear that we need to do two things. One is to continue to support Ukraine for the battle it is facing now. But then the second is to lock in long-term security agreements that will outlive anyone administration, anyone government, both here in the United States and among our allies and partners, who have signed up for the same long-term security commitments,” Miller said.
He also added that the United States is currently discussing with Ukraine what these security commitments will look like.
