Moscow: The total amount of assistance from NATO, the European Union and their partners to Ukraine has exceeded $160 billion since February 2022, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Wednesday.

“Since … February [2022], Ukraine has received hundreds of tanks, more than 4,000 armored combat vehicles and armored vehicles, more than 1,000 field artillery pieces, as well as dozens of modern Western-made multiple launch rocket systems and anti-aircraft missile systems. The total amount of assistance from NATO, the European Union and their partners exceeded $160 billion,” Shoigu said during a meeting of the board of the military department.

The US is raising stakes, seeking to supply Ukraine with weapons reaching targets at a longer range, the minister sais, adding that Washington committed a war crime by including cluster munitions prohibited by the international convention in the aid package to Ukraine.

“NATO countries are currently actively working on the issue of transferring F-16 tactical fighters to Kiev,” the official added.
