"In total, the Contact Group has committed nearly US$65 billion in security assistance to Ukraine," Austin said. 


According to the head of the Pentagon, Russian President Vladimir Putin hoped that the resolve of Ukraine's allies would fade.

"He was betting that our unity would crack. Instead, we remain as united as ever," Austin said.

He also expressed hope that the training of Ukrainian pilots for F-16 fighter jets will begin in the coming weeks.
