The U.S. has been one of the biggest supporters of Ukraine during the recent security crisis with Russia massing over 120,000 combat-ready troops along the Ukrainian border. The U.S. has supplied more than 650 tons of defense ammunition to Ukraine since Jan. 22 and threatened severe sanctions against Russia in case of invasion.
