Earlier, John F Kirby, the Pentagon spokesman acknowledged that the United States provides. “Ukraine with information and intelligence that they can use to defend themselves”. Washington routinely provides information about the movement of Russian troops and equipment. And helps Ukraine confirm the location of critical targets.
